Scania's truck shows what the driverless future of mining will look like

Scania's AXL concept provides a preview of the driverless mining truck of the future

Scania has already developed a number of self-driving trucks that are currently in service across several customer operations, but they've always included a cabin just in case a human driver needs to take over. Pulling the cab out is the next logical step, with the AXL controlled solely by an external logistics system that tells it where to go and how to behave.
