Self-driving truck technology developer Plus announced it signed a memorandum of understanding with Iveco, a brand of CNH Industrial N.V., to jointly develop autonomous trucks that will be deployed across China, Europe and other areas.
“Our teams will work closely to develop and deploy autonomous trucks, including one that is powered by natural gas,” Shawn Kerrigan, chief operating officer and co-founder of Plus, said in a release. “Iveco’s global footprint in over 160 countries will enable us to accelerate our commercial deployment and magnify the impact of our autonomous driving technology.”
Under the terms of the nonbinding memorandum of understanding, Iveco and Plus will integrate Iveco’s latest-generation S-WAY heavy-duty truck with the PlusDrive full-stack autonomous driving system, according to California-based Plus.
