KAMAZ may start a serial production of unmanned trucks by 2025. The prototype has already been created. It knows how to drive on specified routes without the help of a driver.
The serial KAMAZ-5350 with all-wheel 6×6 chassi was chosen as a base truck for the new prototype. It is equipped with the most modern equipment: radars, active optical sensor (lidar), video cameras, communication systems. The truck can recognize road signs, markings, other road users, including pedestrians. A joystick for the remote control was also developed for the autonomous KAMAZ.
Tests of the unmanned vehicle will begin in the near future.
