Just a “standard” automated Repair/Recovery vehicle. This is an automated vehicle that still has room for a driver and passengers, but is capable of operating on its own due to its autopilot and agents. It is intended as a combination roadside assistance and tow truck.

The GMC Semi-autonomous Repair and Recovery Vehicle is one of a new line of semi-autonomous worker drones that have started to make their way into the market. The drastic drop in the cost of both rigging hardware and software has opened up a wide variety of industrial and commercial applications for drones. When used without a driver the vehicle can be run like a drone in areas that have a high incident of breakdowns. When a Gridgird “Disabled Vehicle” alert is generated or the driver contacts a repair shop the company can route the nearest repair vehicle to that location. The smart agent can then run a diagnostic of the disabled vehicle and attempt to repair it. (The workshop and arm allows for many common repairs to be done on the spot. If a part is needed the company can dispatch the part via drone from a central warehouse if it is available.) If the smart system can’t find the problem a Rigger Mechanic can jump into the vehicle to perform a more though examination or perform a tricky repair. If there is a crash or the vehicle cannot be repaired the tow arm will allow the vehicle to be towed quickly and safely to a repair depot while the passenger rides comfortably in the cab.

For smaller operations or those that operate out of Grid a standard tow truck driver can operate the vehicle in a standard method, but still allow the ease of on-site repair without the expense of having trained mechanic in every vehicle.

When the vehicle is not responding to disabled vehicles it can be used to preform regular maintenance on vehicles or do onsite repairs for minor issues or body work. Clients can set-up an appointment to have these operations done at work.
