Parked inside Daimler Trucks North America’s (DTNA) Madras, Oregon, proving grounds is a unique Cascadia. What looks like a neck halo from a distance is actually a sophisticated network of cameras and sensors mounted above the doors that enable driverless driving. In the meantime, DTNA’s Autonomous Vehicle Project Leader and Director Anika Friesinger said the truck maker has focused on safety and how this technology could fit into a fleet’s operation, noting the company’s thought processes on the ongoing development of driverless technology is evolving. “We are interested in how [fleets] are moving freight today [and] which business models will be prime candidates for autonomous trucks when they are ready for deployment,” she said. That’s about all Friesinger would say, noting that the company has shied away from targeting a date as it focuses only on refining the technology to the safest and most reliable levels possible.
