The future of shipping is inherently moving towards being autonomous, and the Otto Self-Driving Truck Kit could help to make this a reality sooner than later. An aftermarket modification for trucks, the kit enables trucks to become autonomous without having to replace the vehicle itself. This would come as welcome news to existing companies that have fleets of traditional vehicles, but are interested in pursuing autonomous capabilities.

The Otto Self-Driving Truck Kit is designed to require trucks to have an automatic transmission and be from at least 2013 and up. The kit taps into an important market segment that pertains to existing products on the market and the ways that they can be updated to be future-ready rather than simply replaced.
