Aurora, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles partner to work on self-driving commercial vehicles
Autonomous technology developer Aurora has partnered with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) to work on self-driving commercial vehicles.
Aurora says that the partnership will “further expand the scope” of the Aurora Driver, which is an independent platform that Aurora describes as “the hardware, the software, and the data services that guide vehicles powered by it safely through the world.”
This will ultimately allow Aurora to offer a variety of technologies to strategic customers in logistics, transit, and other use cases, the company says.
“As part of FCA’s autonomous vehicle strategy we will continue to work with strategic partners in this space to address the needs of consumers in a rapidly changing industry,” says Mike Manley, chief executive officer, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.
“Aurora brings a unique skillset combined with advanced and purposeful technology that complements and enhances our philosophy on self-driving.”
Aurora notes that its partnership with FCA allows it to continue to expand its strengths, capabilities, and resources, as it works to deliver the benefits of self-driving through the transportation ecosystem on a large scale.
