60 Minutes did a feature on driverless trucks on Sunday. Guess what?
Driverless Trucks Reach New Milestone
[…] Please consider Automated trucking, a technical milestone that could disrupt hundreds of thousands of jobs, hits the road.
Starsky Robotics, a tech startup, may have been driving in the right lane, but they passed the competition with 35,000 pounds of steel thundering down a busy highway with nobody behind the wheel.
The test was a milestone. Starsky was the first company to put a truck on an open highway without a human on board.
60 Minutes also spoke with Chuck Price, the chief product officer at TuSimple, a privately held, global autonomous trucking outfit valued at more than a billion dollars with operations in the U.S. and China.
