Swedish autonomous company Einride has launched a new type of vehicle called Automated Electric Transmission (AET).

The company hopes that the AET cars - available in four different versions - will hit the market in 2021.

Like previous Einride models, the new AETs don't have a steering wheel, pedals, windshield or cabin.

Since its inception in 2016, Einride has released some very interesting and eye-catching prototypes.

There's also the T-Pod, which was released in 2017, and it's a car without a cabin.

The company launched the T-Log in 2018, a vehicle that can tow tons of giant logs.

Not only can these vehicles operate autonomously without manual intervention, but are also electrically operated and remotely controlled by the operator.

“AET has higher aerodynamic performance than its predecessors, which helped broaden its production offerings when the company was founded,” said Robert Falk, CEO of the company.

The new car has four models:

(AET 1) and (AET 2) have a top speed of 30 kilometers per hour, weight 26 tons, payload 16 tons, and a range of 130 to 180 kilometers.
AET 3 and AET 4 are similar in weight and load capacity, with top speeds of 45 kilometers per hour and 85 kilometers per hour, respectively.

The main difference between vehicles is their range or the conditions in which the vehicle can drive autonomously.

AET 1 is designed to operate within a geofence or a defined geographic area, while AET 2 vehicles allow remote control outside of a geofence.

The AET 3 is designed for rural areas, while AET 4 vehicles are permitted on the highways.

In terms of technical characteristics, almost all vehicles are the same, and their hardware and software configurations differ according to the specific needs and requirements of customers in the field of use.

This means electric drive systems, and special communication devices that interact with portable charging platforms, such as B. Autonomous Driving Devices (LIDAR), Cameras, and Sensors.

(Ayn Wanted) claims his new car can cut transportation costs by 60% and CO2 emissions by 90%.

The company said: It is using Nvidia's autonomous driving software to reach Level 4, which means driving completely unmanned under certain conditions.

Thanks to Phantom Auto's remote start technology, the vehicle can also be controlled by a remote operator from hundreds of kilometers away.

With this technology, Einride can overcome obstacles caused by off-road driving.

Most experts believe that the first industry to be affected by autonomous driving will be the truck industry, where driverless autonomous technology for trucks can be used over long distances and most of its activities are confined to highways.
