Autonomous truck technology developer TuSimple announced co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Xiaodi Hou will succeed Cheng Lu as CEO and Mo Chen as company chairman, effective immediately.
The San Diego-based company noted the move is part of a planned executive succession as the company moves to its next phase of commercializing SAE Level 4 autonomous trucking technology.
“We’ve set many industry firsts, including becoming the first publicly traded autonomous driving company and first driver-out operations in trucking,” Cheng Lu said in a release. “We have built a strong foundation with the necessary resources to fully commercialize.” — Transport Topics
