Pronto, a US-based developer of autonomous technology, is to supply autonomous and advanced driver assistance solutions to Bell Trucks America (BTA).
As part of the partnership, Pronto will make available its autonomous driving and driver safety technologies to all Bell customers in the US and Mexico on both new Bell truck purchases and existing fleets via BTA’s network of 25+ dealerships and service centers.
“We’re thrilled and honored that Bell Trucks America has chosen Pronto as its exclusive autonomous technology partner,” said Anthony Levandowski, CEO of Pronto. “We started Pronto out of a desire to build real applications for autonomous technology today, and our partnership with Bell Trucks America is confirmation that our technology and strategy are providing valuable solutions to real-world problems.”
With the Pronto partnership, Bell trucks says it will be able to supply the first commercially available off-highway trucks featuring AI-powered Level 4 autonomy.
“We’re excited about the partnership for many reasons, but we’re most excited for the same reasons we chose Pronto – their technology is not only the best, but it can be deployed at a fraction of the cost and time required to deploy any competitive technology,” said Mitch Nevins, CEO of Bell Trucks America. “We already think we sell the best articulated trucks in the market, and now we’re able to provide our customers with the most technologically advanced trucks as well.”
