Behind the scenes of Volvo’s “Look who’s driving” video

51473Less than a week after its December 3 premiere, Volvo Trucks’ most recent live test – “Look Who’s Driving”, has engaged people on social media platforms all around the world.

In the film, four-year-old Sophie remotely controls a Volvo FMX through one of the toughest tests to date.

Now two new films have been released, offering a behind-the-scenes look at how this Live Test was made.

“We are of course delighted that the film has attracted so much attention and that so many people have taken notice of the kind of tough treatment our construction truck, the Volvo FMX, can handle,” says Ingela Nordenhav, Global Marketing and Communications Director for Volvo Trucks.

In the recently released background material, viewers can among much else see details of the truck’s remote control system and which techniques were required to manoeuvre the heavy vehicle.

“In order to ensure full control of the truck, we needed to be able to control the steering, accelerator and brake with exactly the same degree of precision as if it was being driven by a real driver in the cab,” says Alister Mazzotti, coordinator for the remote control set-up.

In “Behind the Scenes” on “Look Who’s Driving“, the viewer finds out more about the truck’s condition after the test drive. .
