Fresh off the heels of Western Star’s new truck launch comes the debut of a Daimler truck vehicle that those in the industry are referring to as a “work of art.” The Future Truck 2025 was revealed in Germany over the summer, according to an article in the latest edition of Transport Topics, and its advanced technology and revolutionary design are garnering a lot of attention already. What features in particular have got people talking? Read on to find out!
Taking Auto-Drive to the Next Level
The Future Truck 2025 is the first self-driving truck from Mercedes-Benz; its autonomous function utilizes cameras and specialized sensors to allow the truck to navigate safely around other vehicles and obstacles, even at highway speeds. Radar sensors are also incorporated to alert drivers about dangers in their blind spots, making for an overall safer truck.
The look of the Future Truck 2025 is downright, well, futuristic. Instead of traditional rearview mirrors, the truck features a video camera system that provides advanced, comprehensive visuals. Taking out the mirrors also yielded an improvement in fuel efficiency. Subtle differences in the design have made a remarkable difference as well, such as the placement of the headlights; the Future Truck’s are placed under the hood so that the lights shine through the paint. The “smart” lights even shine in different colors to indicate what mode the truck is in: white for manual driving and blue for autonomous.
