Deloitte on autonomous trucks
Last September, I wrote that autonomous trucks will be the first big self-driving market. A detailed new report by Deloitte’s Rasheq Zarif now came to the same conclusion: Autonomous trucks lead the way. “Driverless trucks are already heading out to the highway, as shipping companies increasingly look to autonomous technology to meet rising demand for goods. The focus now: determining the best way to hand off trailers from machine to human.” In related news, self-driving car company Waymo, which has been developing autonomous heavy-duty trucks since 2017, invited a few journalists along for a (virtual) test ride. Exciting few years ahead here.
