Einride has released their plans for T-pods, vehicles piloted by drivers from afar

Einride, a Swedish company specializing in automated transportation, have released their plans for driverless trucks powered only by electricity, called T-pods. Though T-pods won't have a driver in the front, the company does have remote drivers ready to take over should they need to or when the autonomous truck enters a city.

The remote drivers must monitor multiple trucks at a time, however, once a driver gets called to start driving the excess vehicles they were watching go to another remote driver. The design for the T-pod envisions a truck without any space for a human driver to go. All of the space in the vehicle gets devoted to cargo storage, allowing companies to maximize the amount they can ship. Einride believes their T-pod will help pave forward a more sustainable future for the transportation system, hoping to remove harmful emissions from the truck shipping industry.

By 2020, Einride plans to have 200 of these T-pods going throughout Sweden and already have signed contracts for 60 percent of this goal.
