March 20, 2020—Starsky Robotics, the self-driving truck company, is shutting down after not securing additional funding, reported SiliconAngle.

In 2016, the company was the first one to make a paid delivery without a person behind the wheel. 

Starsky Robotics CEO says on Medium that timing is to blame for the shut down.

Before shutting operations, Starsky Robotics had raised $20.3 million in funding, including a $16.5 million Series A round in 2018, according to the report.  Investors included Shasta Ventures, Trucks Venture Capital, Fifty Years, Hemi Ventures, Unshackled Ventures and several individual investors.
