September 04, 2019 - In our opening episode Martin Daum talks to Michael Fleming, a pioneer in the field of automated driving. With his company TORC, Michael Fleming has been contributing to automated driving for a wide variety of vehicles for more than 15 years. Now TORC and Daimler Trucks & Buses have teamed up to teach trucks how to move goods safely and efficiently over long distances - thereby revolutionizing the transport of goods.

About himself, Michael Fleming says he is a "super nerd." He is fascinated by the technological developments in automated driving, as well as the goal of avoiding accidents. For Martin Daum the importance of logistics and trucks for the economy and society stands in the foreground. What connects the two is the passion to make road transport safer and more efficient with automated trucks.

The approach Daimler Trucks & Buses is taking with TORC to explore what it is like to sit in an automated vehicle for the first time and why Las Vegas is a challenge for self-driving trucks is revealed in this episode. Enjoy!
