Locomation (www.locomation.ai) is based out of Pittsburgh and they are developing an AI assisted platooning system that allows one truck to follow another on sections of highway, something they are testing on public roads now. Their goal is full autonomy, but they are using platooning as a stepping stone to safely develop the technology.
Çetin Meriçli is the CEO and co-founder of Locomation, a leading developer of safe and reliable autonomous driving technology for semi-trucks. An experienced entrepreneur and formerly a Special Faculty at the National Robotics Engineering Center (NREC) of Carnegie Mellon’s Robotics Institute, Çetin has over 17 years of experience in developing and deploying complex robotic systems for commercial and military applications – and he has played key roles in over a dozen high profile applied robotics projects. He is a well published expert in AI, robotics, and machine learning.
