Transportation powered by fossil fuels is a major contributor to global emissions, as well as a safety hazard on the road.
Ericsson teamed up with its partners to co-create a safer, more sustainable transport ecosystem using 5G to connect all-electric, automated vehicles.
Switching to electric vehicles can reduce the CO2 emissions of a logistics network by 90 percent, and commercial vehicles being driverless means less downtime, more reliability and more overall cost-effectiveness and healthier air quality and sustainable cities.
Note: Emissions reduction based on Swedish electricity mix.
Supporting the Sustainable Development Goals
The highlighted Sustainable Development Goals are included in the project.
“Our driving mission is to lead the sustainable transition of road freight transportation. 5G provides the connectivity and reliability we need to safely introduce the T-pod onto public roads, paving the way for a 90 percent reduction in CO2 emissions and the elimination of nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions.”
