Cyngn (Nasdaq: CYN), a developer of autonomous vehicle solutions for industrial fleets, and Greenland Technologies Holding Corporation (Nasdaq: GTEC) (“Greenland“), a technology developer and manufacturer of electric industrial vehicles and drivetrain systems for material handling machinery and vehicles, today announced they are embarking on a strategic partnership whereby Cyngn will bring its self-driving vehicle capabilities to Greenland forklifts with its proprietary Enterprise Autonomy Suite (EAS). Integration of EAS will enable Greenland forklifts to switch easily between fully autonomous, manual, and remotely-controlled modes. Organizations that run Cyngn’s autonomous vehicle technology also gain access to a breadth of analytics and software tools to generate operational insights and optimizations.
“Currently, there are over 850,000 forklifts operating in the United States alone,” stated Lior Tal, Cyngn’s Chairman and CEO. “Greenland is a recognized leader in the electric industrial vehicle and equipment space, and this partnership provides an important opportunity to bring self-driving capabilities to this widely-used and ubiquitous vehicle type.”
Raymond Wang, CEO of Greenland, added, “This partnership is another major development as we execute on our plans to bring the most innovative technology to our customers. Autonomous forklifts will not only make it easier for our customers to get work done and provide them with data that has never been available before, but the technology will also help them achieve their environmental sustainability goals by operating vehicles more efficiently.”
Greenland’s GEF Electric Lithium Forklifts are designed with varying rated load capabilities and suited for a wide range of applications, including logistics, warehousing, manufacturing and more. In the months ahead, Cyngn and Greenland plan to bring self-driving capabilities to Greenland’s other vehicles: the electric loader and the electric excavator.
