Daimler AG and Google-owned Waymo LLC agreed on a deal to deploy autonomous SAE L4 self-driving technology, the German car manufacturer announced on Tuesday.

The two companies are set to implement Waymo's automated driver technology to the unique version of Daimler's Freightliner Cascadia truck that is expected to be available in the United States "in the coming years."

"This partnership complements Daimler Trucks' dual strategy approach, of working with two strong partners to deliver autonomous L4 solutions that are seamlessly integrated with our best-in-class trucks, to our customers," Daimler Truck AG Chairman Martin Daum said in a statement.
