Challenges

discovering trucking culture and experiences.

Create a Home

Materials were carefully selected to fit the environment of a truck cabin, while creating an open, home-like living space.

Expand the Space

Passenger seat was removed and replaced by a modular business unit. Expandable “pop out” section was added to the back of the cab allowing space for a convertible sofa to full sized bed.

Freedom of Choice

Three separate modular areas present drivers with a variety of options to choose from when customizing the interior: additional storage, TV, entertainment, exercise unit, toilet, or a washing machine.

Bringing Ideas to Life

creating a customized home-like cabin interior

 

Truck drivers spend a significant amount of time inside their truck cabin, becoming their home for months. However, unlike a home, the driver is currently unable to modify the space to fit their needs. Especially, for drivers operating as a “one person team”, these extra commodities only consume valuable space in the cabin.

Problem: Truck cabins are pre-configured with a static interior, inhibiting the driver from personalizing the interior space to fit their unique lifestyle.

 

Integrate

Development

the new trucking experience.

Peterbilt and Walmart partnered on the development of transportation technologies to improve efficiency, increase environmental stewardship and enhance the driver’s experience. The Walmart Advanced Vehicle Experience is a great example of advanced technology and radical styling demonstrated for a concept vehicle. It includes a home-like modular flex interior that accommodates to meet individual driver needs.
