GOTEBORG, Sweden—Volvo Autonomous Solutions is partnering with Aurora Innovation OpCo Inc. to jointly develop on-highway self-driving truck applications.

“Creating a viable autonomous on-highway offering requires close partnerships with both customers and tech partners to develop the needed capabilities,” says Nils Jaeger, president of Volvo Autonomous Solutions. “This exciting partnership brings our goal of transport-as-a-service an important step closer and will accelerate our commercial offer for hub-to-hub applications in North America.

“Aurora is already a leading force in autonomous systems, and its integrated self-driving stack, software, hardware and data services platform combine to offer a clear path toward efficient and safe on-highway solutions in the medium term,” claims Jaeger.
