What we are doing
The future is autonomous and Locomation has what it takes to achieve it. We're deploying our Autonomous Relay Convoying (ARC) technology into the industry that needs it most—trucking.
At the current pace, it will easily take a decade before any industry sees fully driverless vehicles. We're changing the course by deploying commercial-grade autonomy benefits today with a clear roadmap to higher levels of autonomy in the near future.
As we work towards Locomation technology that comes pre-installed on every carrier, we are making short-term autonomy solutions available as retrofit kits.
How we are doing it
THE #1 PRIORITY
The notion of safety drives our culture and the technology we build. We obsessively exercise military and aerospace grade safety practices and standards to make sure our system is functionally safe.
50% in Labor
With Locomation’s ARC technology fully operating one truck and simultaneously assisting another, the labor cost is reduced up to 50% while the amount of moving freight remains the same.
Faster Delivery to
Locomation’s unique ability to swap leader and follower trucks mid-drive ensures the leading truck is always operated by a rested and qualified driver, ultimately enabling longer distances traversable in a single shot.
8% Reduction in
In a convoy formation, the lead truck’s forward motion creates a low-pressure area in its wake. By staying closely behind, the follower truck can take advantage of this low-pressure area to reduce fuel consumption. As a bonus, the lead truck also gains a little boost through the air.
While experts predict that truly driverless vehicles will not be available for another 10 years, Locomation is making many autonomy benefits available through retrofit kits with a clear roadmap for full autonomy in the future.
