Nuro acquires autonomous truck company

Self-driving drone delivery company Nuro has acquired purchased startup Ike, established by former Google employees, Uber and Apple. Ike is a startup that emerged from stealth mode in 2018 to capitalize on self-driving trucks for long-distance transportation.

So far, the terms of the contract have not been disclosed, but the common vector uniting the companies will allow them to scale Nuro's business, which is so far only common in the Silicon Valley of California. Nuro is currently the first company to receive permission from the authorities for unmanned delivery.

In fact, Ike grew out of Nuro, but no company likes to talk about it. This explains the similarity of development vectors, technologies and hardware technologies. Ike took part of Nuro's software and gave in return a share in the authorized capital of the company that did not allow direct participation in management. Ike employees, including the company's three constitutors, will be based in Nuro.

The COVID-19 epidemic has allowed Nuro to increase capacity and attract even more investment to the company.
