Finland-based autonomous driving company Sensible 4 shifted its sights to industrial applications with its latest automated driving software platform DAWN. The software that will drive vehicles will be optimized for use in mines, factories, refineries, wood processing plants, ports and logistic centers. The need for automated driving technology within industry could not be more apparent: The American Trucking Association forecasts there will be a shortage of 160,000 drivers by 2030.

Finland automated driving technology company Sensible 4 begins commercial operations within the industrial segment using its automated driving software platform DAWN.

Sensible 4 released its first product DAWN earlier this year. The automated driving software platform enables different types of vehicles to operate autonomously in any weather. The company is rolling out DAWN to the industrial segment where commercial viability can be realised today. The automated software platform will be utilised in vehicles that operate in industrial-type environments, such as mines, factories, refineries, wood processing plants, ports and logistic centres.

“We know that the legislation and technology needed for automated vehicles to operate autonomously on public roads, without a safety driver on board, will still take time to establish”, says Harri Santamala, CEO of Sensible.
