Cummins reports it will be launching a set of software features and is collaborating with multiple technology companies to integrate its powertrains with the Automated Driving System (ADS) technologies being developed for upcoming autonomous trucks.

“As the world's largest independent engine manufacturer, autonomous vehicle companies are relying on Cummins’ integration expertise and powertrain solutions to design and provide a software solution to accelerate the rate of adoption of autonomous driving software within the heavy-duty trucking industry," said J Michael Taylor, general manager of Powertrain Integration for Cummins Inc.

“With our investment in and commitment to autonomous vehicle technologies, Cummins is prepared to support our customers by deploying autonomous vehicle technologies across the full range of powertrains, including advanced diesel, natural gas, hybrid, or fully electric and hydrogen fuel cells.”

Cummins says it is positioned to be a leader in its ADS technologies and is currently involved in active testing of more than 100 vehicles in coordination with technology companies to achieve seamless powertrain integration as autonomous commercial vehicles enter the market.
