ZEUX Rules With Volvo CE's Autonomous Wheel Loader of the Future
Updated: Apr 6, 2020
Volvo CE and LEGO Technic® teamed up with a group of kids to create ZEUX, the fully-electric, autonomous concept wheel loader of the future.
"The Eye" is an adjustable camera boom mounted on top of the vehicle, designed to show where the ZEUX is "looking" and establish "eye contact" with humans to acknowledge their presence.
This safety feature does not come naturally with autonomous vehicles, because people normally cannot see all the sensors that allow machines to maneuver around stationary and moving objects. "The Eye" solves this problem and makes the interaction between humans and machines safe and intuitive.
