Redundancy in Autonomous Heavy-Duty Trucks
01 April 2022 by Dr James Jeffs
Autonomous trucks are now entering more advanced stages of testing, with some companies completing driverless journeys on public roads without a driver behind the wheel. This premium article investigates the challenges around system redundancy and failure modes that must be considered when looking to automate a heavy-duty truck. Generally, this can be split by control redundancy, like the brakes and steering, and redundancy in the autonomous control system. Here, we go into detail on which systems are required to have redundancies, how redundancy can be achieved, and what happens when redundancy fails.
