Terberg Takes Part in Autonomous Operation Pilot
19 July 2021
Automation with three layers
Terberg Special Vehicles of the Netherlands are leading the development of fully automated yard tractors, deploying prototypes since 1992. The AutoTUG Concept of automation is based on three layers.
The first layer called ‘Drive By Wire' can be controlled via a CANbus system. Automation is integrated into the vehicle with the relevant safety levels. The ‘Drive By Wire’ controls the operation systems of the vehicle.
The second layer is the ‘Electronic Driver; that utilizes the first layer and is able to drive the vehicle allowing it to manoeuvre along a pre-programmed path.
The third layer is the central system from which the AutoTUG gets its instructions and controls the fleet.
