Lego Zeux is the self-driving future of heavy lifting
It's really about exploring, or setting bounds, understanding the bounding.
Conditions that we have there is technologies that are in the Zux that we actually are working on today and we have some prototypes that we've shared.
Though it doesn't look anything like this.
As part of every Lego design process whenever we are Racing new products, whatever they are.
We always of course involve the kids in that process.
We get a lot of imput.
Things that work, things that don't work.
Things they understand, things they don't understand.
And then we make sure we turn up those things that they really wanna see in the models and then during the creation of the models we're really going into the details of how the models are made.
And we continuously putting the models back in front of the kid to get them to play with them, to get them to make sure that things don't fall off when they dive them around.
I think every generation has something that is a challenge to accept.
In my generation it was mobile phones
The first mobile phones had fake aerials that you believed they could actually communicate and now you get a piece of glass and it's a mobile phone.
And of course it can.
And I think that's going to be the same with this kind of technology as well.
These machines work on a site where Yes, there's no operator with the machine, but there's still people in the site that are managing multiple machines or different worksteps within a site.
And so again to have that personality or that bit which connects with the individuals who are still working on the site is extremely important.
And in a lot of cases with autonomy we want to get people out of dangerous environments first and foremost.
It provides that opportunity.
Need to take the person out of dangerous spaces and allows them to work in a safe environment.
I understand that this machine is something different because there is no driver's hub.
There is a camera, there is this little mapping drone.
And they tell us lots of stories about how it could go in dangerous environments.
How it could go places where we can't go to.
But it would be great, because then it could Could do this or this all sorts of stories and it was really interesting to draw from their knowledge about what the expected to see these types of so you have the really knowledgeable guys And engineers from Volvo that have this incredible knowledge about how a machine should work today and how it could work in the future.
And then you have the [INAUDIBLE] designers that have a huge knowledge of how machines work because they are making different versions of them.
But again maybe they are not as restricted as the real designers because No one's ever felt and you can't do it.
So it gives an amazing opportunity to get those two teams together.
You get the knowledge and you get this kind of naivety and you put it together, and this is kind of like the result of that.
The main purpose that we have with the wheel loader is to move material from point a to point b, and so right now an operator Is physically in the machine and doing that now.
An operator could be running multiple machines to do multiple steps of moving material.
So still working as a partner but not actually in the machine to channel the work effort.
The vehicle knows where it is.
The biggest question is that you don't necessarily know that it knows You can have that sense that okay, it's fine, I believe it [UNKNOWN] But you miss that interaction if you get [UNKNOWN] just from simply crossing the road.
And you see a car waiting in a junction who instinctively make eye contact with the drive.
You know that they've seen you, you know it's safe to walk across the [UNKNOWN] It's the same [UNKNOWN] with this but how do you get that things [UNKNOWN] So by having this movable camera which kinda started as just a camera.
And we said, well, the machine doesn't need it, it's got sensors.
And then we kind a realized that, well, no, the machine need it, but maybe we need it.
And so by adding this camera, it can sort of just turn to look at you as you walk past, or as it drives past you.
It gives you that confidence to know that the machine is seeing you.
And that's really kind of the human element for this is really important to us.
And it really became, I think, one of the most proudest features of the vehicle for us.
