Don Burnette, CEO & Co-Founder of Kodiak Robotics, talks about building a smarter autonomous trucking carrier.

Built for People

We’ve learned from countless industries—from aerospace to elevators—how the utilization of different types of automation can make things work more efficiently and also eliminate risk. And that’s exactly why we’re developing this technology for trucking. When successful, our trucks will improve safety, enhance truck driver quality of life, increase efficiency, and reduce congestion and emissions.

Built for Business

Trucks deliver over 70% of all products shipped each year, but drivers today simply can’t keep up with demand. We believe that our technology is the key next step to filling the supply/demand gap in order to keep businesses moving and customers happy. We truly are on the brink of a revolution in logistics.

Our Journey

Our experience building self-driving vehicles over the last decade has led us to an inarguable conclusion: that today’s self-driving technology is best suited for highway driving. Given our focused approach, we’re confident we’ll be able to deploy our trucks in just a handful of years, safely bringing the benefits of self-driving technology as quickly as possible.
