Unmanned Semi-Autonomous Shunter for Heavy-Duty Trailersystems
The Husky is a diesel-hydraulic machine, which main task is to maneuver heavy trailers, taylored for the large shredders by Doppstadt. In addition, the machine is able to move autonomously, so that the property can be cleaned and prepared for the next working day in the off hours, without additional staff needed. Other addiational systems can also be picked up and driven autonomously. A special hydraulic design allows an additional use-case as a hydraulic generator, through which trailer machines can be operated and driven. These additions make the module profitable as it can be used around the clock for manyfold use-cases.
The design is reduced and seems smart through subtle curvaceous surfaces. Combined with masculine details, it results in a robust, intelligent and confidence-inspiring overall impression.
