on January 23, 2018

We made a big splash at CES 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada, showcasing our Asimov self-driving car system. Here’s a quick recap of the week’s events:

Rain or shine, we offered demos throughout the week to consumers, press, and industry partners on the streets of Vegas.

We announced our partnership with AAA to develop safety criteria for self-driving cars.

We were featured in these two stories:

Here’s what people were saying about us:

  • Engadget: “Torc Robotics, meanwhile, is one of the early pioneers of self-driving, having placed third in DARPA’S 2007 Urban Challenge — back when self-driving cars were a bit more bulky.”
  • TechCrunch: “Its latest partner in that effort is Torc Robotics, a self-driving technology company with loads of experience in automating heavy machinery and commercial equipment that’s now applying its expertise to the consumer market.”
  • AutoWeek: “To see just how much progress autonomous driving systems have made, have a look at Torc Robotics’ Asimov Level 4 self-driving system…it’s among the closest to being worthy of the once-shunned ‘self-driving’ label in development today.”

What’s next? We look forward to another exciting year ahead and CES 2019.
