Hello; Volvo Construction Equipment is proud to present Volvo LX03 – an autonomous concept wheel loader that is breaking new grounds in smart, safe and sustainable construction solutions. This fully autonomous, battery-electric wheel loader prototype is pushing the boundaries of both technology and imagination. Why does the back go up and down? At the start I would have said it was a lift saving counterweight, but it didn’t seem to be that. If it doesn’t do that it might as well have two drive motors at the back and get the battery as low as possible for stability between the wheels. And there are already lowering-regen system that makes lifting a bucket nearly free. I don’t want to say it is good or bad, merely that it doesn’t add up. One way this would be very useful is if they can pass control between operators to essentially create zones for each operator.
