Locomation’s ARCSM system is a human-led convoy of two trucks that are electronically tethered. The Human-Guided AutonomySM solution enables one driver to operate the lead truck while a second driver rests in the follower truck. Periodically, the trucks swap places to allow each driver to take turns leading and resting in compliance with U.S. Department of Transportation Hours-of-Service regulations. Locomation will enable carriers to safely operate two trucks for 20-22 hours per day, delivering 2x the cargo, 2x farther, 2x faster.
“Safety and transparency are integral to Locomation’s culture and the ARCSM system will improve efficiency to address some of the most critical challenges facing the transportation of goods. This is an opportunity to have a positive impact on the global supply chain,” Chaka said. “I’m very pleased to be joining the team at this historic time.”
“Locomation’s human guided convoy system is the safest near-term way to get autonomous trucks running commercially at scale,” Stoltzfoos said. “I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it.”
