Michael Fleming is CEO of Torc Robotics, a company setting the standard with commercializing Level 4 autonomous trucks. Torc is an independent subsidiary of Daimler Truck AG — the global leader in the market.
After competing as a Virginia Tech student in the 2004 and 2005 DARPA Grand Challenges, Fleming co-founded Torc to save lives through the commercialization of self-driving technology. In 2007, Torc developed its first-generation self-driving software stack for team Victor Tango, which crossed the finish line in 3rd place. Since then, Fleming has led Torc in deploying its technology in trucking, automotive, transit, mining and defense applications.
