Tech Company Launches Autonomous Trucking

Embark, a new technology company, joined the development of autonomous trucking. Embark, a start-up company, is based in St. Mateo (California). The company's goal is to develop self-driving technology to allow trucks to operate without any human input. Embark has a lot of competition in this area, including Uber's Otto. However, Embark appears to have a significant advantage. The technology developed by Embark is intended to help current drivers and not replace them. The software system is composed of sensors, cameras, and an onboard radar to track the truck's movements. This software will allow you to avoid obstacles such as slow cars in the front, or on unidirectional highways. It is designed to help drivers navigate long straight roads. However, the software will give control to humans when it encounters more complicated driving situations. It would reduce the time you spend driving and help with long routes.
Maven Ventures has provided funding for Embark to support its vehicle development efforts. Recently, the company's trucks were approved for testing on Nevada roads. Although Embark is a leader, there are still many things to be done to improve the technology and make it safer for roads. We can still hope for trucks on the roads soon, but no deployment is yet confirmed.
