Daimler Trucks North America Hackathon
Utilizing Voice Technology for Truck Repair
At Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) we hold ourselves to the highest standards and are leading the charge by driving the Uptime Revolution. We want to get our customers’ trucks back on the road in 24-hours or less.
