Deploying autonomous driving technology with software defined vehicles

In February 2021, Plus launched its groundbreaking driver-in, highly-automated driving product, PlusDrive, and started delivering to fleets and truck OEM customers, including Amazon, so that they can benefit from the autonomous driving technology today and onward with improved safety, fuel efficiency, and driving comfort. We will share our views on the outlook, opportunities, and technical challenges around deploying autonomous driving technology with software-defined vehicles, why highly automated driving (HAD) will be the highest growth area in the coming years, and the way it promises to transform the trucking industry and our society at large.
