Kratos to deploy more autonomous platooning trucks in Midwest

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, space

Platooning technology is allowing lower-cost entry to the autonomous space, where its reach includes the existing truck market rather than solely on “customers who can afford to buy new trucks,” according to Kratos.

“Couple that with the increasing driver shortage and the potential multiplies,” Steve Fendley, president of Kratos Unmanned Systems Division, said in a statement.

The platooning tech goes beyond Kratos. Oklahoma-based carrier Stevens Trucking is looking to deploy the technology with Locomation over a five-year period.
