The Volvo FMX is an exceptionally high-tech autonomous construction truck that is designed to be able to infiltrate mines and other dangerous industrial environments in order to be able to improve safety standards by reducing human exposure to potentially fatal hazards, while also boosting their productivity.

This particular construction truck is outfitted with a whole slew of high-tech sensors that keep tabs on the surrounding environment and help to map out a route for the truck to follow while controlling its speed and acceleration. The truck is capable of detecting obstacles and seeking human instruction to evade accidents.

Considering the innate dangers of mining, this autonomous construction truck is a much-needed innovation that could revolutionize the mining industry and reduce the number of accidents suffered by workers.
