Ericsson, Einride and Telia using 5G for electric, self-driving trucks

Einride, Ericsson and Telia are putting 5G into motion at a DB Schenker facility in Jönköping, Sweden. The goal is to power an all-electric, autonomous transport ecosystem that takes fleet management to the next level.

Ericsson Radio System and Ericsson Cloud Core for 5G are providing high performance connectivity to Einride’s T-pod—a driverless vehicle operating continuously at DB Schenker’s logistics facilities in Jönköping, Sweden.

The high-capacity and low-latency characteristics of 5G will be cornerstones of future transport solutions. The partners say that Einride’s T-pod and autonomous transport system, powered by 5G, can potentially replace more than 60% of today’s transport with a cost-competitive and sustainable alternative.

5G presents an opportunity for telecom operators to tap into new revenue streams emerging from the digitalization of industries. An Ericsson report on 5G business potential shows a US$619-billion revenue opportunity for telecom operators by 2026.
