Product Description and Tech Stack

The team at Locomation is deploying their Autonomous Relay Convoying (ARC) technology into the industry that needs it most—trucking. That means retrofitting trucks with hardware and software for autonomy. Locomation ARC virtually connects two trucks together, keeping an active driver in the lead truck and allowing autonomous technology to operate the follower truck. The lead driver acts as an environmental filter to the autonomy system, greatly reducing the complexity it needs to handle. With the second driver taking mandated rest, twice as much freight volume is transported per driver shift.
