Hydrogen-powered Shunter Drone

Freight yards and industrial areas often lack overhead wiring and rely on diesel locomotives. Hydrogen-powered shunters could be a greener alternative, especially since their short-range operation would require relatively little infrastructure for fuel production and storage. Hydrogen could be generated during temporary electricity overproduction of renewable energy sources.
Contemporary shunting locomotives are already often radio-controlled – equipping the locomotives with advanced sensor suites and autonomous functions could further streamline logistics and improve safety during operation.
While the silhouette is reminiscent of a regular european shunting locomotive, the characteristic central frame accentuates the driverless autonomy of the drone while providing a heightened platform for a multisensor suite. The voluminous central engine compartment with its angular outlines represents traction, power and forward drive.
