Have you heard about the Scania Clock – A Gigantic working clock entirely made out of 14 running trucks?

Benjamin Franklin once said, “You may stop, but time will not.”

Swedish automobile maker Scania achieved to make a running clock for 24 hours straight keeping time down to the second, deploying a great team effort recently while managing a 750,000 sq ft working clock in a deserted airfield by strategically deploying 14 trucks that kept moving round-the-clock.

Scania employed 90 drivers for two hours each, to drive the trucks representing the second, the minute and the hour hands of the clock. Fleet managers kept guiding the trucks from a monitoring room.
