Cyngn, which develops autonomous vehicle systems for industrial fleets, has announced a strategic partnership with Greenland Technologies, a manufacturer of electric industrial vehicles. The two companies will develop self-driving capabilities to Greenland’s forklifts through Cyngn’s Enterprise Autonomy Suite, with the goal of having the forklifts switch between fully autonomous, manual, and remote-controlled modes.

“Currently, there are over 850,000 forklifts operating in the United States alone,” said Lior Tal, chairman and CEO of Cyngn. “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.”

Greenland said its GEF Electric Lithium Forklifts are designed with varying load capabilities, and are suited for a wide range of applications, including logistics, warehousing, manufacturing, and more. The two companies said they plan to bring self-driving capabilities to Greenland’s other vehicles, including the electric loader and electric excavator, in the months ahead.

“This partnership is another major development as we execute on our plans to bring the most innovative technology to our customers,” said Raymond Wong, CEO of Greenland Technologies. “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.”
