Default World's first self-driving mining truck by Volvo

Volvo is testing a self-driving work truck nearly a mile below the surface in an ore mine in Sweden.

Such a setting allows the truck manufacturer to test the vehicle under real-world working conditions, but in a secure space. The mine program will help Volvo refine autonomous truck systems for future applications.

The tests of the autonomous version of Volvo's FMX truck will look at how it increases productivity and safety in the mine. It also will demonstrate that self-driving vehicles can eventually be used on construction sites and open roads.

The truck continually shuttles ore between the loading area and the crusher by traveling a 7-kilometer route through narrow mine tunnels.
