Earlier this month (October 2016) the first self driving 18 wheeler hit the road for a 120 mile trek across Colorado.
This Buds for you as the truck carried about 50k cans of Budweiser.
Meet Otto controlled (Uber division) first self driving 18 wheeler.
Think of the possibilities (and future investments) that exist:
- Night time drives when roads are clear
- Less wrecks
- Time efficiency
- Fuel efficiency via driving at optimal temperature times
- More optimal use of parking and land – less need for extra vehicles
Certainly we are not ready to roll this out in mass, but that sure looks like a light at the end of the tunnel, not an oncoming train!
Technology continues to amaze!
Enjoy your Friday and weekend!
