GM is looking to solve some worlds the toughest transportation challenges with the help of their flexible autonomous fuel cell platform, dubbed the Silent Utility Rover Universal Superstructure, or SURUS. The concept has been developed for civilian use, but can also be used for military purposes.

GM SURUS is a two-axle platform, which looks like a truck trailer without a drawbar. The drivetrain as well as the associated control unit are plugged into the chassis. Optionally, the platform can also be equipped with a driver's cabin. However, it can transport goods from A to B completely autonomously.

The chassis is fitted with electric motors which are mounted on each axle and draws energy from a lithium-ion battery. The battery is powered by a second generation fuel cell. The hydrogen storage system is said to offer more than 400 miles (643 km) of range. GM uses two steered axles for SURUS. Depending on the application, the platform can be scaled in many variants. It is also possible to connect as many platforms as possible, both on and off-road.

The low-noise movement and good off-road suitability of the SURUS platform are also highly welcome for military use. Some applications currently evaluated by General Motors for SURUS are utility trucks, mobile and emergency backup power generation, flexible cargo delivery systems, commercial freight, light and medium-duty trucks and military-specific configurations.
