Daimler has a plan to get autonomous trucks ready for the road

Daimler has a plan to get autonomous trucks ready for the road:

Daimler Trucks is creating a global organization focused on putting automated trucks on the road over the next decade. The Autonomous Technology Group will be in charge of building an automated roadmap for the trucks, as well as setting up the appropriate operations infrastructure and network. The new initiative comes right after Daimler announced a $570 million investment into automated trucks at CES in Las Vegas back in January.

The eventual goal is long-haul trucks with Level 4 autonomy that would travel between defined hubs, such as from a warehouse to a facility, starting with the US.

The group will include Torc Robotics, a Virginia-based self-driving truck software maker. It will bring together experts working at the company’s locations from around the world, from Portland, Oregon to Stuttgart, Germany.
