Russian truck manufacturer Kamaz has introduced a new player in the field of autonomous vehicles: the Robocop, a driverless dump truck designed specifically for use in coal mines. ⛰️
Borrowing more than just a name from the 1987 film, the Robocop seems to embody the same futuristic, tech-driven spirit. Stripped of traditional features like doors and mirrors, the truck resembles something straight out of a dystopian Detroit…except it's headed for Siberia. 🇷🇺
Kamaz is sending its autonomous marvel to the coal-rich city of Kemerovo for it’s first real-world testing to showcase the truck's capabilities in a challenging environment, proving that it's not just a fancy prototype but a fully functional worker bee.
This truck may not be fighting off villains or delivering deadpan one-liners, but it certainly is breaking new ground. 🪨⛏️
