MAN wins “Truck Innovation Award 2024”

MAN Truck & Bus has received the “Truck Innovation Award 2024” from the International Truck of the Year jury.

The commercial vehicle manufacturer was honoured for its research and development projects in the field of autonomous driving – ANITA and ATLAS-L4.

In his laudatory speech, jury chairman Gianenrico Griffini, representing 25 international truck trade journalists, emphasised “the advanced characteristics of both projects, the contribution to hub-to-hub and intermodal transport automation, and the fruitful project cooperation between MAN Truck & Bus, logistics providers, component suppliers, research institutions, and public infrastructure operators” as essential for the Truck Innovation Award 2024 to be presented to the MAN projects ANITA and ATLAS-L4 for autonomous driving.

“The award is not only a great honour for ANITA and ATLAS-L4 and the partners involved. It is also an acknowledgement of the achievements of all our colleagues at MAN, who have been driving automated driving forward with great expertise and passion for many years.

“Alongside digitalisation and CO2-free drives, this is the third key pillar in the transformation to the climate-friendly, safe, efficient and intelligently networked transport of the future. From 2030, we want to offer autonomous trucks in series production for transport on defined routes between logistics hubs,” says Dr Frederik Zohm, Executive Board Member for Research and Development at MAN Truck & Bus.
