CAT – One of the best digital projects in 2020

The Drive Sweden project Connected Automated Truck (CAT) has been highlighted as one of the best digital projects in Sweden at the prestigious CIO Awards, which is a part of IT magazine IDG. This cutting-edge project has contributed heavily to electric, autonomous trucks reaching Swedish roads.
Självkörande lastbil från Einride.

Driving the project were Ericsson, Einride and Carmenta, in collaboration with Telia. Together they have created solutions for connected and driverless electric freight transport and the supporting infrastructure and connected services, which were tested and demonstrated with great success. 

The nomination looked as follows:
The CAT project has tested and demonstrated how an unmanned electric truck can be controlled remotely through 5G and a control tower. CAT is a concrete example of how companies at the forefront of technology can collaborate to create new market segments but at the same time contribute as leading actors for others to follow. By successfully integrating the technology in an autonomous truck in combination with 5G, the project has managed to maneuver a vehicle beyond the Swedish borders.

The project is concluded and you can watch key results in this film and take part of the final report here.

Congratulations to all project partners for this great achievement!
