OSS Receives $300,000 Order for Autonomous Trucking

One Stop Systems (Nasdaq: OSS) of Escondido said on March 26 that it has received an order from an existing customer to design and manufacture a new ruggedized liquid cooling system for cooling self-driving technology in a commercial autonomous truck deployment. The order is valued at $300,000 for prototypes, and OSS expects to begin shipments later this year.

The customer, identified only as a subsidiary of one of the world’s largest commercial vehicle manufacturers, is a pioneer in self-driving technology and is utilizing Level 4 driving automation for commercial trucks currently under development.

Leveraging OSS’ background in cooling compact and ruggedized high-performance compute systems, OSS will integrate a chassis-mounted liquid chiller, coolant pump and control system firmware to create a self-contained active cooling system for the customer’s advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS). Each vehicle will utilize two such systems mounted externally on the back of the customer’s Level-4 autonomous trucks.

“We are excited to support our customer’s commercialization efforts by providing them with our leading liquid cooling expertise and solutions,” said Mike Knowles, president and CEO of OSS. “This prototype order has the potential to be a transformative opportunity for OSS as our customer begins to scale production in the coming years. In addition, we believe there are opportunities to expand our relationship further and provide our ruggedized, high-performance compute and data logging systems in addition to our liquid cooling solutions. Based on our customer’s current commercialization plan, we believe this new solution provides OSS with a long-term growth opportunity.”
