Aurora And PACCAR Team Up In Autonomous Truck Push

Just last month Uber unloaded its self-driving unit, Advanced Technologies Group, to Aurora to accelerate the development of the Aurora Driver, which is hoping to become the autonomous driving platform powering everything from passenger vehicles to heavy-duty trucks.

Aurora is backed by names such as Amazon and Sequoia with Uber now reportedly holding a more than 25% stake in the company following last month's deal. Aurora was co-founded by Chris Urmson, who headed Google's self-driving division for nearly eight years and is one of the most widely regarded names in the self-driving vehicle space.

Aurora didn't take long to announce its next move following the acquisition of ATG as the company signed a global strategic partnership with trucking giant PACCAR to bring a self-driving trucks powered by the Aurora Driver to market in the coming years.
