Find out how teleoperation supports the deployment of autonomous Hub-to-Hub transportation today
HIGHWAY-to-HUB
A teleoperator can drive a truck off the highway to safely reach the hub via an open road and can precisely manoeuvre within the hectic yards during rush hours where autonomous systems might have difficulties.
ASSISTED HIGHWAY Trucking
On a motorway, a (semi-)autonomous truck can drive in level 4 autonomous mode for most of the time, while a teleoperator monitors and assists the autonomous system in case of incidents or takes over control prior to exiting the highway.
SAFE YARD MANOUVERS
Within distribution centres, a teleoperator can manoeuvre a driverless trailer-truck to and from loading gates and to the motorway safely and precisely.

The benefits of Hub-to-Hub transportation

Tap to turn your challenges into benefits with FERNRIDE

Hover to turn your challenges into benefits with Fernride

No autonomy today

Neither AV technology nor legislation currently allows for fully autonomous Hub-to-Hub transportation; the benefits of automation still seem to be a long way off.

Sustainability

Teleoperation technology can currently keep a human in the loop to ensure safe operation; also, current legislation demands a human in control.

Driver shortage

The logistics industry is facing a huge shortage of drivers but a dramatic increase in transportation volume. A trucker’s job is tough and somewhat unattractive.

Sustainability

Our teleoperation centres change the job profile from truck driver to a fleet manager who works regular shifts in a nice office close to home.

Truck and driver utilization

Drivers must take rest periods during shifts and face idle times during loading, limiting the utilization of trucks.

Productivity

Teleoperation eliminates downtimes in long-haul trucking and idle times when loading. Teleoperators can seamlessly switch between vehicles and hand over shifts to colleagues in the centre.

Fernride brings
autonomous trucks
on the road by 2024

Together with leading partners in trucking, technology, research and autobahn infrastructure Fernride joins in the ATLAS-L4 project to bring autonomous level 4 trucks on the road.

ABOUT ATLAS-L4
Fernride Pfeil
“The future of trucking will undoubtedly be autonomous. But human assistance will still be required for highway-to-hub transportation – at least in the foreseeable future.”

Frequently asked questions

How precisely and safely can you maneuvere in a highly frequented yard?
+

Very precisely – just like today's driver. Our teleoperators have an even better situational awareness and camera views than today’s drivers in the cabin. Additional sensor signals and our software further support the maneuvering process.

Who carries out the service on the highway?
+

This is a matter of individual discussion and legislation. Our certified teleoperators are specially trained to operate these trucks and have first-hand experience of road trucking. Based on a service level agreement tailored to your individual needs for driverless Transportation-as-a-Service, our teleoperators can tele-assist the truck on demand.

How many hours can you teleoperate in one shift?
+

Since teleoperation separates the driver from the truck, teleoperators can hand over the vehicle to colleagues in the teleoperation centre. This ensures 24/7 service availability with no “forced” downtimes, increasing truck utilization dramatically.
