Starsky Robotics

Bringing driverless trucks to the market

While others are trying to build an autonomous truck, we are making a truck that drives with no person in it. We are not just building a new piece of technology, we are solving the biggest economic problem in trucking – the driver shortage.

Starsky Robotics is a driverless truck start-up that aims to make roads safer and allow truck drivers to work close to their homes. Starsky is working to solve the driver shortage by making trucks autonomous on the highway and remotely controlled by drivers for the first and last mile. As remote teleoperators, Starsky's drivers are provided with meaningful employment opportunities where they can use years of experience while remaining close to their families.
