Tire blowouts are a reality in commercial trucking, accounting for 35% (± 11.4%) of vehicle-failure-related crashes, according to NHTSA. These tire failures, while unpredictable, are inevitable for commercial vehicles on the road 10+ hours per day. It is essential that vehicles are prepared not only to react to the everyday environmental challenges en route to their destinations but also to handle these tire failures safely, not if but when they occur.

Enter Kodiak Robotics, the first full stack-autonomous trucking company to demonstrate its platform's ability to come to a controlled stop should an event such as tire failure occur. In this QuickChat, learn from Don Burnette, Kodiak Robotics co-founder and CEO, how the kodiakDriver technology has risen to the challenge of solving this complex and pervasive problem in commercial trucking.
