Driverless? Autonomous Trucks and the Future of the American Trucker

The trucking industry is expected to be an early adopter of self-driving technology which could have a major impact on the truck-driving profession.

Key findings

"Autonomous trucks could replace as many as 294,000 long-distance drivers."

"Without policy intervention, automation will likely eliminate high- and mid-wage trucking jobs, while creating low-quality driving jobs."

"Autonomous trucks are best suited to long-distance highway driving, while humans will still be needed to navigate local streets and handle non-driving tasks."
