"...our vision for the future is not that far away. Much of the technology in the Volvo Concept Truck 2020 is already available," says Volvo Trucks design director Rikard Orell.
The Volvo Concept Truck 2020 is a project that concerns more about a cleaner tranportation in the world of tomorrow.All the technology and features exposed on this concept are meant to reduce the CO2 emissions.
A concept of thinking was about making the truck traffic more faster and more economic in this crowded highways.The answer given by this concept to this problem is an automatic pilot system, wich connects wirelless with a control center, wich unites lots of trucks into a convoy, carying it's load with speeds up to 90 km/h.
The Concept Truck 2020 has rear-view cameras that project an image onto the inside of the windscreen and helps the driver to orientate better, LED headlamps and indicators, and collision protection panels on the truck's nose.
