Self-driving truck maker partners with Arizona DOT to boost work zone safety
Autonomous trucking firm Embark is collaborating with the Arizona Department of Transportation to promote the safe interaction between automated commercial vehicles and highway work zones in the state.

Through the partnership, automatic driving systems developer Embark and ADOT intend to work together to share data that will support the safe navigation of highway work zones by autonomous trucks.

Using collected data, Embark will provide Arizona with feedback on mutually-defined areas of interest, such as infrastructure health, road design and quality of publicly available work zone data. Embark will also provide technical briefings to Arizona officials to contribute to awareness of rapidly developing AV technology.
