Ericsson, Einride and Telia partner to show driverless trucks are one step closer to being safe for public roads.

In October 2018, Ericsson and Telia in partnership with Einride are showing how from now on, driverless truck transportation is possible through enhanced connectivity based on 5G at the DB Schenker facility in Jönköping, Sweden.

Ericsson’s Cloud Core for 5G is a key enabler of this kind of sustainable transport system because it provides the connectivity to Einride’s T-pod – a driverless vehicle operating with the safety and reliability needed to bring autonomous trucks onto public roads.

This is the start of a paradigm shift for the transport industry and the way it works with 5G, offering high data speeds and ultra-low latency, which is powering a new world and taking fleet management to the next level, where it is fully connected and automated.

Einride’s transportation solution, is a yet another example of how 5G can help create a more sustainable future. The main benefit is environmental – a shift to all-electric road freight transportation has the potential to reduce CO2 emissions by 90 percent and it will also eliminate emissions of harmful NOx and ultrafine soot particles.

Einride’s Autonomous Electric Transportation (AET) solution for autonomous, all-electric trucks, is yet an example of how Ericsson’s 5G technology enables a connected more sustainable future.
