The State of Autonomous Vehicles with Kodiak Robotics, Plus, and Embark Trucks

You’ve likely heard of autonomous vehicles in the news when it comes to a lot of firsts–but how has AV technology improved in the last couple of years when it comes to the evolution of driver’s role in the vehicle, safety, and future adoption by carriers?

In this episode, I’m bringing you a panel I hosted in January at Manifest: The Future of Logistics. The talk explored the reality of autonomous trucking with some of the best leaders in the AV space which include: CEO and co-founder Don Burnette of Kodiak Robotics, COO and co-founder Shawn Kerrigan of Plus, and Cheif Business Officer Mike Reid of Embark Trucks.  

These are a few of the leaders in this space so if you’re looking for what the landscape looks like today, we’ve got you covered.
