Commercial truck-maker Navistar teams with start-up TuSimple to develop autonomous semis

Commercial truck company Navistar is partnering with a start-up specializing in autonomous vehicle technology to develop self-driving semis.

San Diego-based TuSimple has been researching and testing autonomous vehicle technology with a fleet of self-driving trucks driving in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. Over the next four years, it will work with Navistar, which builds semitrailers, school buses and other heavy duty trucks, to develop a self-driving semi. Production is targeted to begin in 2024.
