The Roadrunner, designed by Adriano Mudri, is a hydrogen fueled truck ideal for long distance driving in North America and Australia. The Roadrunner is designed to be sustainable in the worst case scenarios of very low fossil fuel supply in future.
Mudri added a few special features to the truck; the steering wheel, and therefore the driver's seat, is located in the center to offer a better view of the road. The Roadrunner is also equipped with rear and front cameras that display the surrounding environment well, including the outer dimensions of the truck. The Roadrunner’s aerodynamic mechanism also reduces noise development and resists less air.
