Inceptio Technology is a Chinese developer of autonomous driving technologies for heavy-duty trucks.

EN Inceptio TrucksThe company recently announced that its Autonomous Driving System has powered more than 40 million kilometres of accident-free trucking on China’s highways. The company says that this latest milestone underlines the safety and reliability of Inceptio’s full-stack autonomous driving system, as well as its accelerating commercial uptake.

Inceptio’s L3 autonomous trucks have been in commercial operation since late 2021. The company says the system brings significant benefits to every segment of the freight hauling ecosystem claiming that its autonomous trucks are sufficiently reliable for OEMs to produce and highly affordable for fleet operators to procure and operate, while its advanced technical features significantly increase driver safety and enable end-customers to receive goods at lower shipping costs.

“We are incredibly proud of the stellar performance record that Inceptio trucks have amassed over the past two years,” said Julian Ma, Founder and CEO of Inceptio Technology. “Across 40 million kilometres of commercial operations, our Inceptio Autonomous Driving System has achieved a highly satisfactory on-time arrival rate for our customers with a perfect safety record. The Inceptio R&D team and the autonomous driving system itself are learning a tremendous amount from our fast-growing trove of operational data, and these insights will be invaluable as we speed up commercialisation of our L3 solution and continue to hone our driverless solution. We look forward to sharing these achievements with industry partners as we explore opportunities to deploy our cutting-edge technology globally.”

The company claims that the system’s ultra long-range 3D sensing technology holds the industry record with an error rate of less than 5% at a distance of 1,000 metres; it has an average lateral control error within 5.5cm; and achieves 3-7% fuel savings compared with the most fuel-efficient human drivers.
