Volta Trucks to integrate last-mile navigation

Electric commercial vehicle manufacturer Volta Trucks has partnered with HERE Technologies to incorporate a last-mile navigation system.

The company’s forthcoming Volta Zero will use EV Range Assistant, a feature tailored for inner-city deliveries.

It includes range prediction for trucks on route and route planning including multiple delivery stops.

Search, routing, real-time traffic, and turn-by-turn voice guidance will be available on and offline.

The navigation system will also feature what3words, which has divided the world into 3 metre squares and given each square a unique combination of 3 random words: a what3words address.

“I’m delighted to confirm HERE as the provider of our navigation system for the Volta Zero, including the integration of what3words,” said Ian Collins, chief product officer, Volta Trucks. “HERE Technologies is another world-class partner for Volta Trucks, delivering the full features of embedded navigation but with the user experience of a mobile navigation application.

“With HERE Navigation, we can provide innovative and differentiated experiences to our drivers while simplifying our supply chain – a key benefit supporting our accelerated route to market”.
