Peterbilt Using ‘Autonomous Vehicle Technology’

Peterbilt Motors Company showed its take on autonomous trucking technologies to reporters Friday during a Technology Showcase at the Texas Motor Speedway.

Bill Kahn, manager of advanced concepts at Peterbilt, doesn’t really like to call the two demonstration trucks “autonomous.” However, they would qualify as a Level 3 autonomous vehicle under U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration classifications, reports todaystrucking.com.

He characterizes the technology more as the “cruise control of the future” and a “stepping stone to autonomous vehicles.” Peterbilt engineers have dubbed it “advanced driver assist systems,” reports todaystrucking.com.
