UD Trucks will showcase innovative solutions, including a concept truck, that incorporate automation, electromobility and connectivity at the 46th Tokyo Motor Show taking place from October 24 to November 4, 2019. These solutions will make logistics smarter and society better for today, tomorrow and the future.
“INNOVATION FOR SMART LOGISTICS”
At the booth, UD will exhibit products and services for today offering smart drivability as “innovation for today,” automation, connectivity and electromobility to support smart logistics tomorrow as “innovation for tomorrow” and the concept truck and other future technologies that will usher in a new era of smart logistics as “innovation for the future”.
Re-imagining the truck of the future
As we imagine the future, the concept truck will be intricately connected to its surroundings, including other trucks, infrastructure and people. The truck will employ various technologies such as personalized displays and camera monitoring systems - all taking smart logistics to a new level of ease, efficiency and safety.
Innovation in automation, connectivity and electromobility for tomorrow
In 2018, UD Trucks announced its Innovation Roadmap - “Fujin & Raijin. Vision 2030.” - which aims to deliver a variety of solutions for smart logistics, including fully-electric and autonomous trucks towards 2030. In 2019, UD Trucks has taken its first steps in fulfilling that commitment.
Fujin Level 4 Automation Demonstrator
The specially adapted heavy-duty Quon employs network-based RTK-GPS (Real Time Kinematic Global Positioning System) combined with autonomous driving technologies such as 3D-LiDAR. This was the actual vehicle used in Japan’s first Level 4 autonomous driving trial by heavy-duty trucks on public roads in August 2019.
Raijin Electromobility Demonstrator
This clean, quiet and powerful prototype is adapted from the heavy-duty Quon. Towards 2030, UD Trucks will develop heavy-duty vehicles that maximize payload and power while drastically reducing noise and achieving zero emissions.
Superior products for today
Quon GK Tractor
UD Trucks’ flagship heavy-duty model excels on five essential features: drivability, fuel efficiency, safety, productivity and uptime. Innovation that puts people first provides a truck that is a pleasure to drive.
Quester GW tractor
For the new Quester, the electronically controlled ESCOT automated manual transmission is available for all models in growth markets outside Japan. ESCOT along with new telematics services help improve driver performance and fuel efficiency.
With a downsized engine achieving light-weight and compactness, along with simpler structure maintaining high reliability, the 8-liter engine generates powerful torque over the whole range. It is light-weight with a high payload.
