TuSimple announced that it has established a comprehensive partnership with ZF, to develop and commercialize technology for autonomous trucks. The partnership, which will begin in April 2020, covers the world’s largest markets including North America, Europe and China.

TuSimple and ZF will co-develop production-quality technologies including cameras, LiDAR, radar, steering and ZF’s automotive-grade central computer ZF ProAI. Concurrently, ZF will support TuSimple’s pre-production driverless autonomous system, and will ultimately serve as the default supplier for their production-ready system for commercialized vehicles.
