Freightliner Inspiration Truck
The first licensed autonomous commercial truck to operate on an open public highway in the United States
The AuTonomous age
The Freightliner Inspiration Truck is the first licensed autonomous commercial truck to operate on an open public highway in the United States, showcasing what is possible through the energy of infinite inspiration. The Freightliner Inspiration Truck is a realistic vision of the future, combining the latest technological developments already deployed in today’s modern on-highway trucks with exciting breakthroughs in safety and connectivity that hold the promise to reduce highway congestion and improve the environment.
A strUcturaL transformation
To transform the Cascadia into the Inspiration Truck, the engineers added Highway Pilot technology to the basic vehicle and adapted it for use on US highways. And because Daimler has a global presence, there was close cooperation between our engineers in Germany and the USA. The experience they gathered with the Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 also found its way into the Inspiration Truck. The goal they set themselves – official approval – was achieved: in May 2015, the state of Nevada licensed two Freightliner Inspiration Trucks for normal operation on public roads.
MORE MEN'S GEAR
It is unlikely to see the production line anytime soon — and this Ford is not even official, however we still wouldn't mind hopping behind the wheel of this.
