Kodiak has quietly been constructing a powerful operation tackling center mile freight transportation, one of many greatest and most conducive markets for autonomy.

My crew covers planning, controls, and simulation, and so they’ve been constructing impressively!

I’m having fun with observing the similarities and variations between self-driving vans and self-driving automobiles. At a excessive degree, the planning, controls, and simulation duties are fairly comparable throughout industries, however the particulars create distinctions.

For instance, Kodiak vans function totally on controlled-access highways, which makes lane boundaries extra salient and reduces a few of the complexity inherent in city driving.

Then again, Kodiak vans journey at freeway speeds, a lot quicker than self-driving automobiles in city environments. This adjustments the time and distance horizons for the complete autonomy stack — notion, prediction, planning, and controls.

I’ll write extra concerning the work right here within the coming weeks. Within the meantime, Kodiak has a nice weblog with insights about our newest initiatives.

Lastly, Kodiak is hiring like loopy! We must always rent you! Work on self-driving vans with me.
