Outside the box: Remote operating of Einride's autonomous vehicle at Goodwood Future Lab

Want to know what operating an electric truck remotely from across the ocean feels like? Visitors at the Goodwood Festival of Speed Future Lab last week already do.

The Festival, held in the beautiful parkland of West Sussex, England, is motor culture’s ultimate garden party. In other words, the perfect place to introduce the world's first remote operator station for transport.

Einride shipped the station over to England and offered visitors the chance to operate the electric, autonomous vehicle live at the AstaZero test track in Sweden, 1,200 kilometers away. 

Remote operation and oversight technology give remote operators the ability to monitor and control the autonomous and electric vehicle — and sometimes multiple vehicle — over a 5G connection from nearly anywhere in the world. The technology has the potential to change what it means to be a trucker, from “on the road” to “work from home.”

“We need to think outside the box, and outside the box is actually being at Goodwood [and remotely driving the autonomous vehicle],” said Marie Dahlgren, Vice President of Product Development.
