Kodiak Unveils Industry-First Semi-Truck Designed For Driverless Deployment

Kodiak Robotics, Inc., a leading self-driving trucking company, announced the world’s first driverless-ready semi-truck designed for scaled deployment. It is equipped with all the necessary redundant safety-critical hardware, including breaking, steering, and sensors, as well as the software required for driverless operations at scale.

Kodiak’s sixth-generation truck further enhances the overall reliability of the technology by building on Kodiak’s five years of real-world testing that includes 5,000 loads carried over more than 2.5 million miles. This new truck will be used for Kodiak’s drivers operations, which it plans to initiate between Dallas and Houston 2024. The vehicle will debut at the 2024 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) at Kodiak’s LiDAR partner Luminar’s booth in the West Plaza (outside beside the Diamond Lot) at booth number WP-10.

Kodiak’s sixth-generation truck includes redundancy across all safety-critical functions, including a redundant braking system and redundant steering, redundant power, an Kodiak’s custom-designed high-integrity Actuation Control Engine (ACE) system.

Kodak’s sixth generation platform uses hardware that has proven safety performance in existing commercial applications. The Kodiak Driver, Kodiak’s vehicle-agnostic self driving system, including its redundant driverless-ready hardware platform, is designed to be safer than a human driver. Kodiak plans to roll out its sixth-generation truck to multiple vehicle types.

The sixth-generation truck features twice the GPU processor cores, 1.6x greater processing speed, 3x more memory and 2.75x greater bandwidth to run software processes compared to Kodiak’s first-generation truck. With this launch, Kodiak’s driverless truck design is now feature-complete across both hardware and software.

“We’re the first and only company to have developed a feature complete driverless semi-truck with the level of automative-grade safety redundancy necessary to deploy on public roads,” said Don Burnette, Founder and CEO of Kodiak. “Over the course of 2.5 million miles, we’ve successfully demonstrated that our self-driving trucks can withstand the harsh environment of long-haul trucking from both a platform integrity and a software perspective. This truck fundamentally demonstrates that we’ve done the work necessary to safely handle driverless operations. While we continue to work with leading truck manufacturers, the technology we developed is deployment-ready, uncoupled from OEM timelines and truck manufacture-agnostic, which allows to move fast while keeping safety at the forefront.”

Sixth Generation: Safety Critical Redundancy

Braking: While traditional trucks feature redundant braking systems, Kodiak is taking it one step further in the interest of safety. Kodiak’s pneumatic braking system consists of three individual brake actuators simultaneously controlled by Kodiak’s proprietary software. Should any of the braking actuators fail, the backup systems can prevent loss in control and bring the truck to a safe stop.

Steering: The dual-redundant steering system includes two redundant ZF actuators controlled by Kodiak’s safety system. Based on Kodiak’s safety analysis, should the primary steering actuator experience any type of failure, the steering system seamlessly switches, switches to the secondary actuator to maintain full control without compromising the vehicle dynamics and move the vehicle into a safe state.

ACE System: Like Kodiak’s fourth-generation and fifth-generation trucks, the sixth-generation truck includes the Kodiak ACE, a proprietary, custom-designed, high-integrity safety computer. The ACE is responsible for ensuring that the Kodak Driver can guide the truck to a safe “fallback” out of the flow of traffic in the unlikely event of a critical system failure.

Power: The sixth-generation truck includes a redundant power system, which powers the computers, sensors, actuators and all other electric systems. The power system is split into two fully isolated subsystems that ensure all safety systems can execute a safe fallback should either fail.
