Cummins developing software for automated vehicles

Cummins says it is developing software that will integrate its powertrains with automated driving systems.

The Columbus-based engine manufacturer announced yesterday that it is actively testing more than 100 vehicles in coordination with automated driving technology companies with a goal of seamlessly integrating Cummins powertrains into automated commercial vehicle markets around the globe.

J. Michael Taylor, general manager of Powertrain Integration for Cummins says the company is prepared to support customers deploying autonomous vehicle technologies across the full range of its powertrains. That includes advanced diesel, natural gas, hybrid, fully electric and hydrogen fuel cells.
