Autonomous electric truck company Einride rides into Germany  

By Editor - Fri Sep 16, 5:48 am

Autonomous and electric truck maker Einride is rolling into Germany, representing its first new market in Europe outside its native Sweden. Founded out of Stockholm in 2016, Einride has raised some $150 million in funding to commercialize a cab-less autonomous cargo truck, one that can be controlled remotely if required by human operators . It’s a notable departure from the slew of rival autonomous trucking companies out there, which are essentially retrofitting existing trucks for an autonomous world — Einride’s trucks are custom built for autonomy, with no physical space for a human driver to even sit. While these so-called “ pods ” have been fully piloted with commercial clients, regulatory hurdles has meant that Einride has had to offer human-driven electric trucks as part of the transition to full-autonomy, which are available to shippers and carriers in Sweden and in the U.S., where it launched last year , alongside its software-based Saga platform for running and optimizing fleets.
