Remote Gateway

Soon the Remote Gateway will be available, a new product that allows us to support the driver remotely in case of problems with the driving system. In addition, we will be able to make non-safety-relevant software adjustments without the need for an employee to be on-site – a tremendous time-saving in case of required updates or troubleshooting.

The Remote Gateway will not be permanently connected to the truck. For remote access, the driver sets up a hotspot with his mobile phone and connects the Remote Gateway to the SOPHIE-RC controller.

Volvo SOPHIE-RC Driving System: New Features

30. October, 20232 Minutes

Month: October 2023

Thanks to the feedback from drivers and operators, we have now completed software version 2.0.0 for the Sophie-RC driving system. This version brings a variety of new features and improvements, which not only make operation easier but also ensure an even safer and more enjoyable driving experience.

Here is an overview of the new functions:

  • Hill Start Assist: This function facilitates starting on a slope by preventing the vehicle from rolling back.
  • Gear Selection and Display of Gears in the Remote Control: You now have full control over the gear selection directly in your hand, including a display that shows you the current gear at all times.
  • Faster Steering (adjustable): The steering speed has been significantly increased compared to previous versions. Additionally, there is now the possibility to configure the steering speed individually for each vehicle.
  • Speed Limitation Below 5 km/h: Previously, it was not possible to adjust the maximum speed below 5 km/h. This changes with the new software version. Adjustments to, for example, 3 km/h are now easily possible.*
  • Individual Adjustment Options for Throttle, Brake, and Steering: With the new adjustment options, you can precisely tailor the response of the throttle, brake, and steering to your needs, for a smooth and precise driving experience.

*The speed limitation is a thrust control without power loss. During downhill driving, this does not necessarily affect the speed, so the set Volvo parameter limits the speed here, or the driver has to engage the service brake.
