We may see soon an IVECO autonomous truck. As a matter of fact, IVECO has reached an agreement with the Californian e company Plus for the launch of a pilot in Europe and China, with the aim of validating and integrate Plus’s autonomous trucking technology with the latest generation of the iconic IVECO S-WAY heavy-duty truck.

According to the terms of the agreement signed between the two players, this first joint trial will test and demonstrate the performance of Plus’s integrated system in the IVECO S-WAY across a wide range of environments and driving conditions. This level of comprehensive testing, using both the driver-in PlusDrive solution and Level 4 autonomous driving technology, will help gather data and validate the design integral to S-WAY autonomous production.

The autonomous truck project, according to IVECO

«As the only autonomous trucking technology company that has already started delivering a commercial product to customers in the heavy-haulage sector, Plus has developed a clear and compelling strategy to launch a driver-in solution first and then a Level 4 autonomous truck. This is in line with our customer-centric view of a more automated and safe truck aiming at improving productivity and reducing operating costs», said Marco Liccardo, designated Chief Technology & Digital Officer of Iveco Group.
