The TA15 is the manufacturer’s first autonomous electric hauler. The electric drivetrain and battery of this construction vehicle are based on the company’s proprietary technologies. The automation system uses various sensors, including GPS, LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) and RADAR (Radio Detection and Ranging), allowing the hauler to move around the construction site completely autonomously. The TA15 generates less noise and emissions thanks to the electric drive, and it operates reliably, safely and climate-neutrally. A light signal indicates when the machine is in which particular mode.
Statement by the Jury
The TA15 reflects an important step towards automation in the construction industry. The electric hauler increases productivity, efficiency and safety on construction sites.
