When we founded Fernride in 2019, we had ten years of research experience behind us in the field of automated driving at the Technical University of Munich. There, we primarily investigated teleoperated driving and this has strongly inspired our product vision and technology. We are convinced that it is not necessary to drive one hundred per cent autonomously, rather we use as much autonomy as can now already function. There are certain gaps, so-called edge cases, that concern e.g. safety – these add a lot of complexity. And it is precisely these that we do not leave to technology, but make the responsibility of people. But the driver controls the vehicles remotely: from the control centre, which can be a simple office where they are operating a console. They can even operate several trucks from there at the same time. Today this is just four, for the future we are planning up to 50 and more. Then the trucks behave like mobile robots that can be used to automate the work processes of logistics companies.
