NATSO announced today that Kodiak Robotics, a leading self-driving trucking company, will display an autonomous truck at the 2023 NATSO Connect show in Dallas. The event, which will take place March 7-10, will provide truckstop and travel center executives to see one of Kodiak’s autonomous trucks firsthand while learning about its innovative features.
NATSO Connect attendees can schedule an individualized appointment to view the truck, and ask questions of the Kodiak team, including how the autonomous trucks operate in real-world conditions and how travel centers, truckstops, and off-highway transportation energy providers can adapt and develop autonomous truck services to benefit from changing truck technology.
Kodiak is disrupting the freight industry with its unique approach to autonomous trucking technology. Kodiak Robotics is developing an industry-leading self-driving technology purpose-built for long-haul trucks called the Kodiak Driver. The Kodiak Driver has an advanced technology stack, designed to make trucking safer and more efficient. Kodiak’s technology allows trucks to operate autonomously on highways, both day and night, while maintaining high safety standards.
"We're thrilled to showcase a Kodiak autonomous truck at the 2023 NATSO Connect show in Dallas," said Daniel Goff, Head of External Affairs, Kodiak. “As autonomous trucking continues to mature, we want to introduce NATSO members to the range of benefits that will be provided by self-driving trucks and show the critical role that travel center operators can play in their deployment at scale. We’re confident that visitors to the NATSO Connect show will be excited to see Kodiak’s industry-leading solution in person."
“We’re excited to welcome Kodiak to NATSO Connect,” said Pamela Hayes, Vice President of Business Development for NATSO. “This year, we are showcasing vendors that specialize in technology, innovation, and alternative fuels, and Kodiak’s presence fits in well with displaying the latest innovations in the industry.”
Kodiak has a long history of working with industry leaders to develop autonomous trucking solutions that meet the unique needs of the industry. NATSO Connect attendees are encouraged to schedule their appointment in advance to view the Kodiak truck and visit with the Kodiak team on Wednesday, March 8 between 10 am and 5 pm and Thursday, March 9 between 9 am and 5 pm.
