‘World’s first’ fully autonomous truck yard now in operation in Texas


A vehicle technology company announced that the “world’s first” fully autonomous truck yard is currently in operation at a large distribution center in Texas.

According to a February 7 announcement, self-driving vehicle company ISEE has deployed a fleet of driverless yard trucks at an unnamed customer’s site somewhere in Texas.

ISEE identified the customer only as a Fortune 100 company with a 1.7 million square foot distribution center and 750 trailer staging bays.

“This campus is the first facility to commercially deploy a fleet of fully-autonomous yard trucks. It validates that ISEE is leading the industry in autonomous yard truck technology,” said Yibiao Zhao, ISEE CEO and Co-founder.

“The autonomous truck yard represents a significant milestone in the advancement of transportation logistics. By harnessing the power of AI, machine learning, and computer vision, ISEE has created and deployed a fully autonomous system that streamlines the yard movement of trailers and containers to reduce costs, improve safety, and give companies staffing predictability amidst ongoing labor shortages,” ISEE said in a news release.

“Recognizing revenue from a Fortune 100 customer for their full-facility deployment is only the beginning. We have a strong pipeline that we are excited to share when the moment is right,” said Debbie Yu, Co-founder of ISEE.
