KAMAZ for the first time showed a prototype cabless truck

At a cabless truck Volvo Vera another competitor has appeared. In early 2020, the domestic giant KAMAZ PJSC showed the appearance of its sixth prototype unmanned vehicle.

The new Russian truck, formerly known as KAMAZ-3373, received the name "Shuttle" and looks like a rectangular container on wheels. It is worth noting that, to its cabin-free appearance, the car has come a long way, starting from a prototype based on a conventional tractor with an autonomous driving system.

The current version of the robomobile, completely devoid of a cab, is capable of independently transporting up to 10 tons of cargo in a container with dimensions of 8 x 2,55 x 4 meters mounted on a biaxial chassis. The latter has high maneuverability, which allows the truck to easily turn around and park.

The shuttle received a permanent magnet synchronous electric motor, providing a constant speed, regardless of load. Two domestic machine vision systems located in the front and rear of the car are responsible for controlling the situation on the road, which avoids unnecessary manipulations when changing the trajectory of movement.

At the moment, the speed of the drone is limited to 40 km / h. The machine has yet to go through many tests. However, taking into account the accumulated experience at the previous stages of the project development, in the coming years, the manufacturer may reach the serial production of cabinless trucks.

    You will see such a thing for the first time on the road - you can go crazy looking for a cab with a driver and nervously remembering if you have abused anything picky today.

        But, as soon as it slackens, you can stop and ship the excess or compensation.
        Or will two heliks accompany him with guards?

    All drivers - on soap, canned food and fertilizers?
    Electricity for billions of electric vehicles in the world will be generated by Greta Tumberg-Soros, pedaling the tandem ...
    Is all electric jalabud cheaper than the same gas? Even if you occupy all the fields with solar panels, hammer all the seas and oceans with windmills, there will not be enough electricity for everyone. And humanity will not have money for trillions of gigawatts. Therefore, humanity is not needed! The civilized countries have already worked out a way to make canned animals for animals and fertilizers for plants (the Scandinavians are ahead!)
    As Prynts from Buckingham Palace said there:

    He reiterated his desire to be a catalyst for mass genocide in the foreword to his book If I Were an Animal, released in 1986.

    I just wonder what it would be like to be reincarnated in an animal whose species had been so reduced in numbers than it was in danger of extinction. What would be its feelings toward the human species whose population explosion had denied it somewhere to exist .... I must confess that I am tempted to ask for reincarnation as a particularly deadly virus.

    In the event that I incarnate in someone in the next life, I would like to return to it with a deadly virus, in order to contribute to solving the problem of overpopulation.

    - Philippe told the German News Agency in 1988.

    No wonder the virus has the name "Corona".

    For freight terminals, it’s good if you put things in order there. On the long-distance will either create kilometer traffic jams, or lie in ditches.
