Hyundai has revealed two concept vehicles at the North American Commercial Vehicle Show: the HDC-6 Neptune Class 8 heavy-duty truck and the HT Nitro ThermoTech trailer-tractor.Hyundai has revealed two concept vehicles at the North American Commercial Vehicle (NACV) Show as a part of its Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle 2030 Vision.The automaker introduced the HDC-6 NEPTUNE Concept Class 8 heavy-duty truck, while Hyundai Translead, its trailer manufacturer, announced HT Nitro ThermoTech that was developed with Air Liquide.Combined, they make an environmentally-friendly semi-trailer truck.Fuel cells are the "perfect fit" for commercial heavy-duty trucks because of a higher drive range and payload and lessened refueling time and costs, according to the automaker.The trailer was created specifically in response to the need to reduce greenhouse gases and fossil fuel dependency.
Design in the early- to mid-20th century was full of optimism.Art deco and the "rocket age" look became staples.Hyundai revealed the Hyundai HDC-6 Neptune on Monday, a hydrogen fuel cell-powered semi truck that looks like something from a cross between Tron and I, Robot.Its striking looks graced the North American Commercial Vehicle Show in Atlanta, and the we received a few more details about the unique semi concept.The automaker also mentioned it's learned a lot from its fuel cell passenger-vehicle program, most recently with the Nexo crossover, and it sounds like those lessons helped shape the HDC-6 Neptune.With a hydrogen fuel-cell powertrain, the company said designers looked at the semi with a clean-sheet reinterpretation.
A space rock the size of a big semi-trailer trucked past our planet last week, going undetected as it approached and ultimately passed closer than many communications satellites in orbit.Asteroid 2019 RP1 on Thursday made the third-closest approach of 2019 so far, coming within 37,399 kilometers (23,238 miles) of Earth's surface.It was also the second fastest near-Earth object to fly within one lunar distance of our planet this year, clocking in at a smokin' 25.9 km/s (57,937 mph), according to NASA data.Amateur astronomer Tony Dunn reported on Twitter that 2019 RP1 "was undiscoverable prior to closest approach because it came from our daytime side, but it was picked up quickly when it entered our night sky."NASA estimates the asteroid was between 7 and 17 meters (23 to 56 feet).For comparison, the bolide that entered the atmosphere and exploded above Russia in 2013, blowing out thousands of windows in the process, was probably about 17 meters across.
While the auto industry is largely concerned with autonomous cars and how they will impact personal transportation, others want to revolutionize how companies transport goods.The San Diego-based startup has just got the backing of one of the biggest names in shipping and logistics: UPS.UPS said Thursday it's made a minority investment in TuSimple.The shipping behemoth has actually worked with TuSimple since May to test self-driving technology in semi trucks; the new investment extends the relationship.Right now, the startup's technology focuses on Class 8 trucks -- trucks that weigh more than 33,000 pounds and often have at least three axles.Specifically, UPS and TuSimple have worked together to understand what it will take to roll out Level 4 self-driving technology for the UPS fleet of semis.
First came the electric Freightliner box truck, and now we have the semi truck.Daimler said on Monday it's built the very first eCascadia semi trucks and they're on their way to the first lucky customers in the US.If the eCascadia looks and sounds familiar, that's because it's based on Freightliner's normal Cascadia semi.Daimler has previously said the electric powertrain makes 730 horsepower and is good enough for 250 miles of range.Plug the big semi into the right connector and 80% of the battery's capacity returns in 90 minutes.The electric semi isn't exactly going into production just yet, however.
Waymo is bringing its self-driving trucks back to Arizona freeways, the company has announced, marking the return of its big rig testing in the Phoenix region.The company previously tested these autonomous semi-trucks in Arizona in 2017, later deploying the same large vehicles in Atlanta, Georgia.The self-driving vehicle company describes this as a continuation of its testing effort.Waymo’s self-driving semi-trucks are fully autonomous, underscoring the potential commercial application of the self-driving tech we’ve seen in the company’s smaller vehicles.Waymo originally operated the self-driving trucks in Arizona as an early testing effort to get data on operating the vehicles in that particular region.In a tweet published on Wednesday, Waymo revealed the autonomous truck testing will resume on Phoenix freeways, but didn’t provide a start date.
The United States Postal Service (USPS) has chosen self-driving trucking company TuSimple to haul mail as part of a two-week test of the startup’s autonomous technology.TuSimple will carry the mail on five round trips between the USPS’s Phoenix, Arizona, and Dallas, Texas, distribution centers, which is a stretch of more than 1,000 miles.The test runs will include overnight driving, and TuSimple’s trucks will have both a safety driver and engineer on board.The USPS has also been running a years-long competition to create an all-electric version of its next-generation mail delivery truck.TuSimple has been slowly expanding its testing over the last year, starting largely in the autonomous testbed that is Arizona, where it had 11 trucks on the road as of January.While it hasn’t named names, the startup has carried cargo for 12 different companies on its tests to date as a way to offset the cost of developing its self-driving technology.
Tesla’s advanced driver assist system, Autopilot, was active when a Model 3 driven by a 50-year-old Florida man crashed into the side of a tractor trailer truck on March 1st, the National Transportation Safety Board states in a report released on Thursday.Investigators reviewed video and preliminary data and found that neither the driver nor Autopilot executed evasive maneuvers before striking the truck.NTSB issued preliminary report Thursday for its ongoing investigation of the fatal, March 1, 2019, highway crash near Delray Beach, Florida.The preliminary report is available at;— NTSB_Newsroom (@NTSB_Newsroom) May 16, 2019The driver, Jeremy Beren Banner, was killed in the crash.
Toyota's Project Portal, which brings its zero-emission hydrogen fuel-cell tech to commercial trucks, has been graduating through various stages since the pilot program kicked off in 2017.Now, it's ready to put some of these trucks to work with other companies.The automaker has unveiled the latest version of its hydrogen fuel-cell semi-truck, which was developed jointly with truck manufacturer Kenworth.This next step will see 10 examples of this truck being used for several companies' drayage operations in the Los Angeles area.This latest swath of zero-emission trucks is expected to start operations in the fourth quarter of 2019.Like previous iterations of Project Portal, the latest trucks rely on a hydrogen fuel-cell powertrain, which takes compressed hydrogen gas and converts it to electricity, with the only byproduct being potable water.
For a few months each winter, Canada’s Tibbitt to Contwoyto Winter Road is the world’s longest ice highway, a 300-plus-mile network of frozen lakes that connects lucrative diamond mines in Canada’s Northwest Territories to supplies from the nation’s not-quite-so-far north.Each December, as Canada’s many northern lakes develop thick frozen patinas on their surfaces, engineers from Nuna Logistics survey and develop that year’s route.Semi trucks loaded with diesel fuel, cement, and mining supplies sally forth from Yellowknife—the northernmost town with reliable overland roads en route to the mines.Building the ice road costs about $15 million Canadian dollars each year, but it’s well worth it.Without ice roads, mining companies would have to rely on helicopters to get their gear north, which would obviously cost much, much more, and be far more subject to inclement weather.The trucks themselves increase the rate of entropy.
MIT engineers are working on methods that will help heavy-duty trucks, like big rigs, to reduce emissions and use less fuel.The majority of heavy-duty trucks out there are powered by diesel engines and a new way of powering the trucks that MIT has developed promises to significantly reduce pollution, increase efficiency, and reduce or eliminate net greenhouse gas emissions.The concept involves a plug-in hybrid engine system primarily powered by batteries and a spark ignition engine rather than diesel.The engine would also the trucks to drive the same distances as conventional trucks can.However, there would be a flex-fuel model that would run on gasoline, pure alcohol, or blends.The end goal is to power semi trucks with batteries exclusively according to the researchers.
The Tesla Semi isn't even in production yet, but it appears at least one early model is getting put to work.Tesla on Monday tweeted a video of its all-electric Semi hauling a carrier's worth of Tesla vehicles.The tweet's caption makes it sound like the Semi is actively participating in delivering Tesla's production vehicles, and it definitely looks good doing it.This follows a tweet from CEO Elon Musk over the weekend, which showed a static picture of the Semi fully loaded for vehicle deliveries.In a follow-up tweet, Musk said the company has been "so mired in production [and] logistics for [the] past 18 months," and that he is "[r]eally looking [forward] to getting Semi into production."Tesla has been placing ever more focus on delivering vehicles in the past several months.
LAS VEGAS—For obvious reasons, the automotive coverage at Ars often focuses on ADAS—advanced driver assistance systems.From convenience features like adaptive cruise control and lane keeping to more safety-oriented features like blind spot monitoring or automatic emergency braking, ADAS are becoming more common in new vehicles—usually with brand-specific and potentially confusing names.Which is why I was very surprised to find out that these kinds of systems are only now just being rolled out to the biggest, heaviest vehicles on our roads: class 8 semi-trailer trucks.As we've remarked (or complained about) on more than one occasion, the annual CES trade show in January has effectively turned into an auto show, with OEMs and their suppliers demoing their latest tech advances.In 2015, it used the Hoover Dam to show off an autonomous truck concept, and this year it returned with the production version.Called "Detroit Assist 5.0," it features many of the same assists you might find in a current Mercedes-Benz passenger vehicle: adaptive cruise control down to zero mph, lane-keeping assistance, automatic emergency braking, and even blind spot monitoring that keeps a virtual eye on the passenger-side length of the trailer as well.
Go slow.” Yeah, you don’t have to tell me twice.And it’s actually really cool.The Freightliner eCascadia is based on the diesel Cascadia, a Class 8 18-wheeler and one of the most popular long-haul trucks currently on the road in North America.By allowing me to take it for a spin, Daimler is making a bold statement that it is out in front (way out in front) of much hyped upstarts like Tesla and Thor.With professional truckers behind the wheel running regular routes, Daimler hopes to learn more about how the vehicles handle, endure the rigors of the road, deal with charging and route issues, and manage other factors that can’t be accounted for until these trucks are used in the real world.Also eliminated are the noise pollution of the incessant roar of traditional tractor trailers, not just the particulates and smog.
In 2015, Daimler told the world it was building the world’s first self-driving semi truck.It pulled out all the stops for the big reveal of the prototype, debuting the truck on top of the Hoover Dam in the middle of the night and renting out Las Vegas Motor Speedway to offer test rides.This week at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show, Daimler is back with the near-final production version of that truck, and we got to take another ride.Over the last three years, Daimler has taken the technology and the ideas that were in that prototype truck and worked them into the latest version of the Freightliner Cascadia, one of the company’s most popular trucks.More importantly, Daimler says it’s ready to put the truck into production this summer and start delivering them to customers later this year.That means that by the end of the year, truckers around the country will be able to use the new Cascadia’s driver assistance features to make their long hauls a little bit easier.
Volvo Trucks, not to be confused with the maker of the XC40 and the V60, is getting ready to put its new electric VNR truck on California's roads starting in 2019, with sales beginning in North America in 2020, the company announced today.The all-electric VNR regional transport truck is based on established EV technology that Volvo pioneered in its FE Electric city buses, introduced earlier this year.Volvo Trucks' aptly named sister company Volvo Buses has managed to sell more than 4,000 electric buses since it launched them in 2010.The FE Electric drivetrain consists of two electric motors that produce a maximum of 496 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque.The motors are paired with a two-speed transmission that can transmit a total of 20,651 lb-ft of torque to the truck's rear axle.The system is available with battery packs of up to 300 kilowatt-hours that deliver a range of approximately 124 miles.
Nikola Motor Company (the second company named after Nikola Tesla) believes future long-haul trucks should be powered by hydrogen fuel cells.The company hasn’t delivered a single truck yet, but it’s already unveiling a new design.While the original Nikola One and Nikola Two semi trucks (basically two variants of the same design) were aimed at the United States, the Nikola Tre was designed for Europe.The flat front and boxy overall appearance are common for European semi trucks, but rarely seen in the U.S. these days.Nikola also said the Tre will possess hardware that lays the foundation for autonomous driving.A Nikola press release said the company plans to begin testing in Norway around 2020, and that Nikola is in the “preliminary planning stages” to choose a location for a European factory.
Nikola Motor, which less than a year ago announced plans to build a $1 billion hydrogen-electric semi truck factory in a suburb of Phoenix, said it’s in the preliminary planning stages to identify the proper location for its European manufacturing facility.European testing is projected to begin in Norway around 2020, the company said.The Tre — it means three in Norwegian — is still years away from production.CEO Trevor Milton said production will begin around the same time as its U.S. version between 2022 and 2023.But it illustrates Nikola’s global aspirations.Nikola had to design a different model to meet those regulations before it consider trying to break into Europe.
