The trucking transportation industry drove millions miles to all cities every day has long faced the big and most vulnerable problems of sleepiness. Drivers spend weeks sleeping in cabins, lacking showers and rarely family gathering in poor working standards. The autonomous truck is the solution where in 2024 the industry will be short of 174,500 drivers.

Embark developing technology allows the truck to work completely without the need for a human touch. Trucks equipped with radar, camera, and depth sensors to know the world around it. Once in town, professional drivers will take over and navigate the truck into the warehouse.



"Autonomous vehicles will really change how we manage our roads, cities, and lives.This technology promises to save lives, reduce emissions, and free billions of working hours to live better," Embark said.

"While most of the development is for passenger vehicles, we believe commercial trucks as the economic backbone stand to reap countless profits by rolling out automated trucks especially long-distance logistics services," Embark said.

The Startup posted a US$75 million valuation after a US$15 million Series A fundraiser led by Data Collective and includes YC Continuity, Maven Ventures and SV Angel to help recruit new talents as an engineering team and add more equipment to expand the testing fleet at all over the United States.

Rodrigues said Embark initially built a prototype test on a Peterbilt 579 truck, but Peterbilt would be preparing a special truck for the new test and other supplies needed by Embark at the Denton plant. Embark-Peterbilt collaborations are the Waymo-Alphabet races as major rivals in the same business.
