How it works

Aurora Horizon will be available to carriers and private fleets, who can “hire” it as a service. This “driver-as-a-service” will be available as a subscription on trucks provided by our OEM partners. The process is straightforward: secure a truck, subscribe to Aurora Horizon, and begin moving goods with a scalable service designed to integrate with your network.

    Our mission control system will be designed to integrate with your existing transportation management system to enable efficient dispatch, route monitoring, and scheduling for your vehicles. Beacon will constantly monitor the health of the truck and situations on the road. If it detects a problem or an unexpected signal from either, it will automatically alert one of our remote specialists, who can review what’s happening and get the truck back on track. 

  • Aurora Shield

Transforming how we move

Ride-hailing adoption has grown exponentially over the past decade. By 2030, it’s projected that 90% of Americans will have requested a ride via an app.  We believe that advancements in self-driving technology will democratize access to mobility by lowering costs and expanding ride-hailing into more passenger mobility use cases. When our autonomous ride-hailing business launches, we expect it to transform mobility by dramatically improving:

An optimized product offering informed by unique access to Uber data

We are building the Aurora Driver to offer rides through ride-hailing networks. Our strategic partnership with Uber and unique access to its data is allowing us to not only design a product that mobility customers will love, but also strategically deploy it in the right places to enable high uptime and short wait times.

  • Detailed marketplace data combined with regulatory understanding  is enabling us to select the best cities and markets to debut.

Building autonomous technology is a vastly different game and Aurora has put together a technical team second to none to solve it at scale. The real magic will happen when we plug the Aurora Driver on our global network and people can hail a ride with a human driver or a virtual one.
