TARA autonomous transport solution from Volvo Group is a complete solution designed to operate autonomously within a defined area, like a quarry or a mine. The solution is not only about individual machines, but a whole transport ecosystem that offers greater safety, improved productivity, much lower emissions, and a lower total cost of ownership.
In 2020 TARA won the coveted Red Dot Award for product design, the industrial design award comparable to the film industry’s Oscar.
The autonomous battery-electric TARA is a new concept designed to disrupt today’s off-road hauling. It is based on shared technology from Volvo Group.
TARA has an inherently positive environmental impact, including a significant reduction of emissions. Combining automation with electrification is a sustainable solution. The CO2 footprint will be reduced – when combined with green or carbon-neutral electricity – by 85 per cent on specific sites. On an average customer implementation site, the CO2 footprint will be reduced by 75 per cent.
