Embark is a leading developer of autonomous technology building self-driving truck technology to make roads safer and transportation more efficient.
Embark is working to build a future where roads are safer, drivers work closer to their homes and families, and goods move faster and are cheaper.
Embark was founded in 2016 by Alex Rodrigues and Brandon Moak. The company is headquartered in San Francisco, California.
Embark technology enables trucks to automatically merge onto or off highways, to stay in the center of a lane, make automatic lane changes, and navigate from highways on surface streets to transfer hubs.
Embark recently unveiled a “universal interface,” a set of standard components (sensors and other hardware) that truck manufacturers can install for a customer and that enable Embark’s driverless features.
Embark is partnering with Anheuser-Busch InBev, Werner Enterprises and other major shippers and cargo haulers to make sure that autonomous systems work within the growing ground freight industry.
Embark is backed by Tiger Global, DCVC, YCombinator, Sequoia, OMERS Ventures, Maven Ventures and others. The company raised $70M in a Series C round on Sep 25, 2019. This brings Embark's total funding to $117.1M to date.
