Swedish company reveals an autonomous, all-electric log truck called the T-Log

Swedish tech start-up Einride has revealed the T-log, an autonomous, all-electric logging truck. The truck was unveiled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Robert Falck, the CEO of Einride, said “It has no driver’s cab but can be remote-controlled by a human operator, from hundreds of miles away using Phantom Auto teleoperation safety technology designed to provide robust, minimal latency telecommunications even with 4G. No driver’s cab enables a smaller vehicle, increased loading capacity, greater flexibility, lower production costs, lower operating costs and optimized energy consumption, allowing the T-log to run solely on batteries, even in difficult environments.”

Einride hasn’t released a timeline for production or a price target, but they mentioned that the lack of driver’s cab will make the truck cheaper to produce.
