BLACKSBURG, Va. (WDBJ) - Torc Robotics is planning to expand and enhance its self-driving truck in early 2021.

Last year, Torc and Daimler joined forces to develop safer tractor trailers on our highways.

As they begin to develop a new Level 4 model, this test truck will have more adaptive software to help with on road traffic situations. Future test trucks will have the ability to slow down and stop without human intervention if brakes fail.

The team also just expanded to roads in New Mexico for additional testing.
