Daimler Truck is a pioneer in autonomous driving and has a clear roadmap to deliver fully automated trucks within the decade for the benefit of our customers, and to the benefit of society as a whole. Our ultimate goals are to reduce accidents on our roadways, support the economic engine of our country and the world, and improve the comfort and safety of truck drivers.
Daimler Truck is a leading OEM in the development of SAE Level 4 (L4) autonomous trucks with critical redundant safety systems. With its independent subsidiary Torc Robotics, Daimler Truck is pushing ahead with the development of autonomous trucking in the United States. The companies have the longest autonomous driver technology and truck OEM partnership in the industry and have been safely and reliably testing a fleet of autonomous trucks on public roads in the U.S. on a daily basis. As a next step, Torc is now cooperating with leading U.S. logistics companies to further develop the real-world applications for autonomous trucking.Read More
We are delivering engineering solutions that strive above all to improve road safety while helping our customers improve business efficiencies. This journey is a marathon, not a sprint. Development and deployment of automated trucks takes time, and safety is our top priority.
We strongly believe in collaboration and partnerships to develop, test, and commercialize SAE Level 4 automated technology. We are combining our rich heritage of truck development, manufacturing expertise and infrastructure network with the software expertise of our partners Torc Robotics since 2019 and Waymo since 2020.
Daimler Truck and Torc Robotics share the same goal to bring highly automated trucks to series production within the decade. Together we have achieved significant progress on our roadmap. The strategic partnership with Waymo complements our dual-strategy approach to work with strong partners to deliver highly automated L4 solutions, and to seamlessly integrate those solutions with our best-in-class trucks to our customers.
