Texas A&M University is currently developing technology behind autonomous trucks. Aurora, Embark and Waymo are some of the tech companies behind this new innovation. TAMU Program Director Dr. Srikhanth Saripalli and students work with sensors, cameras and GPS antennas to create lidar technology.
Saripalli stated, “Given the shortages in truck drivers and well as the current supply chain issues and trying to get things faster and quicker everywhere autonomous trucking makes perfect sense. At A&M, we want to make sure we are testing and developing algorithms that make autonomous trucking safe.” Aurora and Waymo now have test routes along I-45 from Dallas to Houston.
