Gatik and Isuzu North America Corporation joined forces to develop and evaluate fully autonomous medium-duty trucks, creating what is said to be an industry first in the medium duty category.
This collaboration will accelerate the commercialization of autonomous delivery fleets while contributing to a safer and more sustainable logistics community in the future.
“By bringing these two teams together, we can create segment-changing technology while positioning Gatik to safely commercialize autonomous delivery technology at scale,” says Gatik’s CEO and co-founder Gautam Narang. “Isuzu N-Series trucks have been best-sellers in their class in the combined U.S.-Canadian market for 35 consecutive years, making them an ideal fit for our solution. We are excited to combine our industry-leading expertise and bring a long-term, sustainable solution to the supply chain.”
“As customer requirements for the medium duty product evolve at an increasingly rapid pace, having the ability to collaborate with Gatik, an industry leader in autonomous technology, is very exciting for our team,” says Takashi Sadaoka, president and CEO of Isuzu North America Corporation.
- The first vehicles will be deployed this year.
- The collaboration will integrate Gatik’s autonomous driving technology into a number of Isuzu medium-duty N-Series trucks to produce SAE Level 4 delivery vehicles with redundant systems.
