The concept of ERider was developed by the Optronics & Defense division of Safran Electronics & Defenseto offer a man-driven 4-wheel-drive vehicle that can also be used as a robot. The eRider is the result of three years of research into the subject of mobility in the future.

The eRider is part of the Light Strike Vehicle class, i.e. light tactical vehicles used by armed forces for both logistics and operational missions. Therefore, it is a man-driven, multi-mission 4-wheel-drive vehicle with configurable autonomy functions.

Basically, it can be driven like a conventional vehicle and transport a combat group or it can be used as a robot, with partial or total autonomy, to carry out different intelligence-gathering missions, for example. This hybrid electric vehicle has an on-board electric generator.

The eRider vehicle can run at a maximum speed of 70 km/h in autonomous mode with a maximum cruising range of 300 km. The eRider is capable of operating with great discretion, due to its very low thermal and acoustic signature.

The E-Rider also includes partial or total autonomous functionalities, which can be configured and parametrized. The Safran Electronics & Defense concept introduces progressively and incrementally autonomous mission based on a classical platform, either piloted or unmanned. This approach changes significantly the integration of autonomous mission of military forces.

With the erRider the troops onboard the vehicle can leave the vehicle and with only one switch, the vehicle can be operated in autonomous mode in less than a few seconds. The roof of the vehicle is fitted with the with Safran’s MPS which includes an Electro-Optical Daylight camera, a Thermal Imaging camera and Laser Rangefinder.

In autonomous mode and thanks to the Inertial Navigation Unit integrated in the vehicle, the eRider can be used for perimeter surveillance and reconnaissance missions.

According SAFRAN, the eRider autonomous guided system can be easily integrated to other military vehicles as trucks, light tactical vehicle or tracked armoured vehicles.
