Autonomous Transport Solutions at Scania is one of the key areas in Scania strategy “driving the shift”.
At Autonomous systems we work with enabling solutions within the area of Onboard and Offboard systems, managing both autonomous driving of the vehicle and controlling/supervising via Scania cloud based control tower.
Within Autonomous Transport Solutions we work in different value streams: Hub-to-hub (H2H) Confined (Mining).
Within the confined area Scania has a partnership with the Mining customer Rio Tinto in Australia.
To be able to deliver a larger number of trucks and hence start operation at Rio Tinto there is a need to produce the trucks in production rather than as prototype trucks with a lot of hands on actions.
The first part of this work is run in a project with plan of introduction 2023.
A second introduction is also planned. Work is started and preliminary to take place in the middle of 2025 with the aim to make the introduction complete with standardised methods, processes automotive suppliers etc.
Both projects are an introduction projects that demands creative ways of solving issues since the volumes are low, the suppliers are not the regular automotive suppliers, the concept is not mature etc. The goal is to find the best possible solutions for Scania in all parts of the chain from R&D via purchasing and logistics to production and service market.
