Aurora and Volvo to develop Level 4 self-driving trucks

Published

on

In mid-February, it was announced that Aurora, a self-driving vehicle development company, had partnered with the world’s largest automaker, Toyota. Together with a third entrant, Japanese auto parts supplier Denso, the partners plan to develop and test vehicles with Driver self-driving technology developed by Aurora.

According to the new information, Aurora will also develop self-driving trucks of the fourth level. This work is stipulated by an agreement with Volvo. The partners intend to create fully self-driving cars that run between major cities in North America.

Aurora and Volvo said they have been looking into a potential partnership since 2018, already collaborating on the prototype of the Pistachio truck shown in the illustration. Back then, Aurora Driver technology was not yet capable of safely driving such a large and heavy vehicle. The new sensor technologies acquired by Aurora in 2019 give partners reason to believe that they are now ready to create a fleet of self-driving trucks of the fourth level. In addition to helping with vehicle manufacturing, Aurora will provide logistics and operational support using the cloud to make truck operations more efficient.

It remains to be recalled that the fourth level of self-government corresponds to fully automatic movement in certain zones or conditions. In this case, constant attention of the driver is not required. Outside these zones or conditions, the system calls on the driver for help, and if he cannot take control, then stops moving and parks the car.
