Iveco, Plus start automated truck public road testing in Germany

Iveco and Plus will begin testing in Germany and plan to expand to Austria, Italy and Switzerland.

Iveco and Plus are starting public road testing of their jointly developed next-generation automated trucks in Germany. As a part of the public road testing, the companies say they will collect road data to validate their autonomous truck’s operations and start designing the potential factory production.

The companies say the PlusDrive-enabled Iveco S-Way truck is designed to improve safety, efficiency, driver experience, and to provide a more sustainable option for fleets.

The public road testing starts in Germany, and will expand to Austria, Italy, and Switzerland in the coming months. Each country’s unique roadways and driving conditions will expose the automated truck to a broad range of terrains, road gradients, weather conditions and driving scenarios, the companies say.
