A truck drives along a motorway all by itself, at a speed of 80 km/h, communicating with its surroundings and ensuring more safety on the roads. It also saves its operator money, and relieves its driver of stress and fatigue in monotonous traffic situations.

Sounds like science fiction? It is already here today - the Future Truck 2025 from Mercedes-Benz. The Highway Pilot system enables this truck to drive autonomously at a speed of 80 kilometres per hour. It is based on intelligent networking of all the safety systems already available, plus cameras, radar sensors and vehicle-to-vehicle communication.

Thanks to autonomous driving, the transport sector could look like this in ten years: Traffic flows are smoother, more predictable and safer. Human error behind the wheel is avoided. Freight forwarders operate more profitably and flexibly. The professional profile of the truck driver has undergone a change – from a trucker to a transport manager with far more responsibilities.
