Terberg, market leader in terminal tractors and Fernride, a vanguard in autonomous trucking announced their collaboration to develop an automated terminal tractor CE certified for commercial production. This solution offers both teleoperated and autonomous driving capabilities to ensure a smooth and gradual transition to full autonomy with human-in-the-loop.
Paterson Simons saw a very impressive demonstration of the tractor at a dealer event in late 2022 where the tractor was operating at Terberg’s facility in Ghent, Belgium, but the operator was based at Fernride’s facility in Germany.
Terberg manufactures fully electric and diesel-powered terminal tractors with a drive-by-wire interface, and will integrate Fernride hardware kit, consisting of computing, connectivity, and sensor-suite, in their assembly line. Rob van Hove, CEO Terberg Special Vehicles division, said: “We look forward bringing the collaboration with Fernride to the next level, integrating Fernride’s state-of-the-art software and hardware kit with Terberg’s advanced Drive-By-Wire tractor and implementing the combined solution successfully at customers.”
