The German automobile maker, Audi has just released a video concept of their future truck called Audi semi-autonomous self-driving truck aka Autosledge. This is a good reason to believe that Audi’s plan for the future semi-auto and self-driving vehicle seems very promising. The concept of this semi-auto self-driving car was developed by 2 German digital artists Artem Smirnov and Vladimir Pachenko.
They made 2 concept designs of the self-driving truck and post the images and videos of their work on Instagram after their jaw-dropping presentation was a success. This is just one of the many concept designs presented to Audi Automobiles for. Many design authors and digital artists have equally presented their work(s) to the likes of Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Peugeot and even Toyota. But then, this particular truck concept is a nerve-wracking and unbelievable at the same time.
With its sporty and futuristic look, elongated head and tail lamps, silk-like smooth exteriors, cockpit, cabin and some sort of rectangular steering wheel, The truck is primarily intended to transport heavy duty. Audi’s plan is to produce an electric autonomously driving truck that will have two options:
Option A is an electric truck that will semi-auto drive on a highway, then option B is an electric truck show car. But Audi failed to achieve this plan and ideas of theirs, so they merged the two concepts to become one.
The Audi future truck will come operated by two drivers just like the case of a pilot and a co-pilot. If this is finally achieved, then it won’t be wrong to say that the next generation experience of truck driving will definitely feel alien, and cargo transport won’t be limited to Uber and co anymore.
Besides the Audi semi-autonomous self-driving truck, there are also, there are other semi-autonomous self-driving truck future trucks out there like;
Future Man Metamorphosis Truck
Black Hawk Future Truck
Future Kamaz Truck Concept
Future Man Truck 2050
And there are other automobile companies that have shown interests in releasing their own auto driving and future trucks. I also have a feeling that automobile companies like Elon Musk’s Tesla and Mercedes both have something cooking on the self-driving truck front.
