Move over, driverless cars. The push to one day make autonomous trucks a common highway sight is coming through.
Aurora Innovation Inc., a Strip District-headquartered self-driving tech startup that offers products including an autonomous trucking service, says it is exploring the integration of its trucking technology into Uber Freight’s brokerage network.
Aurora — which has offices in the San Francisco Bay Area; Dallas; Seattle; Bozeman, Mont.; Louisville, Colo.; and Wixom, Mich. — announced the move Wednesday.
Already, as part of a multistage commercial pilot, Aurora’s Horizon trucking products are autonomously hauling cargo between Dallas and Houston for Uber Freight customers. It began last week, a company spokesman said.
