Plus (formerly Plus.ai), a leading global self-driving truck technology company, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with IVECO jointly to develop autonomous trucks that will be deployed across Europe, China, and other geographies.
Under the terms of the non-binding MOU, IVECO and Plus will integrate IVECO’s latest-generation S-WAY heavy-duty truck with the PlusDrive full-stack autonomous driving system. The partners will also explore using IVECO’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) engine system to power the jointly developed autonomous trucks. LNG-powered S-WAY trucks not only significantly reduce carbon emissions, but also reduce unladen weight and therefore increase payload capacity.
Plus is working with shippers and truck manufacturers around the world to deploy PlusDrive.
