OverviewSuggest Edit

Starsky Robotics is engaged in making driverless trucks. The Company aims to make trucks autonomous on the highway and remote controlled by drivers for the first and last mile. Starsky uses software, radar, and computer vision cameras to allow long haul trucks to drive autonomously on the highway, and then turn the job over to a trained “driver” using a remote control to bring the truck from the exit to its final destination.
