driveblocks, a technology provider for autonomous driving software, today announced that its Mapless Autonomy Platform will be integrated within the new TIER IV highway trucking initiative. TIER IV has launched this program as a response to driver shortage challenges facing Japan’s cargo industry and plans to conduct proof of concept (PoC) tests on Japan’s public highways, starting in Japan’s fiscal year 2024. By developing a reference design for commercial truck manufacturers, TIER IV is fully dedicated to facilitating the deployment of autonomous driving. The technology provided by driveblocks will function as a safety layer for situations where HD maps are not available.
