September 15, 2018

China unveiled an electric self-driving heavy truck in Shanghai on Thursday. Fully developed by China, Q-Truck, the e-truck, features innovation in both design and performance. It adopted a cab-less design, and installed batteries in the traditional cabin position instead. Facilitated by visual cameras and multiple industrial-level sensors, it has been verified to be able to maintain sound performance a variety of operating environments. The vehicle can achieve a maximum load of 80 tons with a maximum gradeability, or its ability to climb slopes, of 15 percent, making it possible to handle load work in complicated sites.
