Doosan unveils concept truck

Doosan has produced a concept truck, the ICF, with a range of new features including a “work guide system” to enable operators to see information about their cargo and interpret the best optimised work process they should apply to it as well as an extendable counterweight for better stability and loading capacity.

Other ideas on show include changes to the operator position, mast properties and drive train. The ICF shows how the company may eventually incorporate augmented reality systems into a heads-up display.

The truck was created by technologists at the Doosan Institute of Technology Industrial Design Centre.

Paul Watson, Doosan’s UK sales manager, said: “Even though we won’t be seeing the ICF in warehouses for some time yet, there may be some elements that we will hopefully be able to incorporate into our next series of products.”
