Autonomous Fleet Vehicle Flow Optimization by Scania

About

Does your solution help in optimizing the autonomous vehicle flow in complex environments at a vehicle level? Let us hear from you!

Theme Description

Scania is in the midst of the transformation from a classic vehicle manufacturer to a supplier of sustainable transport systems. We firmly believe that autonomous vehicles and intelligent management systems form the key cornerstones for future transport solutions.

With the help of our well-advanced, cutting edge autonomous technology, advanced sensors and wireless connectivity we are continuously developing new solutions for transport operators all around the world. Together, we can help transport operators in optimizing and orchestrating the vehicle flow of entire autonomous fleets and remotely monitor autonomous vehicles. If you are working in the autonomous vehicle industry or are a professional in teleoperation or fleet network operations, let us hear about you!

Opportunity Overview

To increase the value of an autonomous fleet on a site, we are exploring capabilities that make use of an aggregated view derived from connected fleet vehicle data. Our objective is to optimize transport flows in real-time and to learn how to improve these flows.

Specifically, we are interested in operating at complex sites such as quarries (open pit mines), harbors, and industrial areas that often have a mix of open areas, complex road networks, and confined spaces – and where up to as many as 100 autonomous vehicles are in operation. Do you have a solution that could help us in optimizing the vehicle flow in complex environments at a vehicle level?

Focus Areas

Examples of solutions we’re interested in

Flow Optimization

Optimize flows of several autonomous vehicles in the same area to maximize efficiency, avoid and solve deadlock situations.

Machine Learning

Learn the optimal vehicle flows over time and e.g. minimize distance travelled, predict congestion, increase flow smoothness, and create insights to domain-specific planner for improved routing.
