Voiceover

Hello, everyone. Welcome to this experiment for Volvo. 
Today is the ultimate test of the steering system. You will see a hamster steering a truck from the bottom of this quarry to the top. 
This environment looks beautiful, but it is very very dangerous.  
The hamster cannot look out the window, so we will have the driver show and guide the hamster with a carrot. 
Good boy! 
With the system, it's very interesting. I can steer it with my fingertips. 
All right, this is Charlie. Good luck! Oh, and don't forget this. Very important. 
3,2,1, go! 
Well done, Seon. That was close. OK, be careful Seon. 
Well done, everybody. Great job.
