In the media: driverless machine shows the road in the woods

Published: 2 November 2017

ATL, the Agricultural Business Magazine, writes about an autonomous terrain vehicle, which is now being built by students at the Sirius project course at Luleå University of Technology.

In spring, the terrain vehicle platform will be tested for soil preparation, where it is about how the machine itself can avoid obstacles and automatically find suitable positions for the installation.

Magnus Karlberg tells ATL magazine that the way forward is that researchers and manufacturers work together to develop sub-solutions that can then be put into production.

– In my world, suppliers have no choice. Autonomy and electrification or other sustainable energy options are the future. But I do not know if it takes 5, 20 or 30 years.
