Torc Takes Texas: Bringing Autonomous Trucking to Ft. Worth, Austin, and San Antonio

If first responders and government officials can’t make it to Torc, Torc will bring autonomous trucking technology to them, especially in Texas!

Torc took to the Texas highways May 6 – 9, 2024, visiting locations in Ft. Worth, Austin, and San Antonio. With a traveling, custom-wrapped event trailer as our location on wheels and our ADS-ready Freightliner Cascadia, Torc hosted over two hundred first responders, transportation experts, and the public safety community. The week was filled with amazing conversations about autonomous trucking and Torc’s First Responder Interaction guides, while sharing Torc’s commitment to safety and innovation.

Torc’s First Responder Guide provides information on how first responders can safely interact with our trucks. More information about our First Responder Guide can be found here.

The tour was an important opportunity to share Torc’s vision and provide attendees with a first-hand experience with our innovative long-haul trucking technologies. Guests were able to climb into the truck cab, view the controls, and learn about the sensors, cameras, and software that encompass our autonomous driving system. Importantly, it provided education about the future ahead, answering questions, offering facts, and explaining how autonomy will help shape freight logistics.
