Self-Driving Trucks Have Arrived - Watch Them in Action

Mar 8, 2018

Self-driving trucks are now a thing, and they're being used to generate business. Take a look at them in action below!

Uber's autonomous vehicles are moving cargo for customers of their commercial cargo shipping app Uber Freight.

While still in its early stages - currently being trialed in Arizona, USA - the operation sees both human drivers and autonomous trucks working in tandem.

How it works is that Uber will load up the freight on a conventional, human driven truck who collects the load from the shipper and then does a short haul run to a transfer hub.

The short haul truck then loads its cargo onto a long-haul freight transport, which is autonomous for the purposes of these trips.

That self-driving test truck handles the highway driving for the longer portion of the trip, handing it off once again to a human-driven trip for the short haul cap to the overall journey.

Is this the future? Could you see YOUR fleet being run by autonomous vehicles?
