How Drivers and Autonomous Trucks Could Work Together to Move Freight

How Drivers and Autonomous Trucks Could Work Together to Move Freight

"The advent of automated driving technology is poised to transform the trucking industry in the years and decades to come, but it is clear that autonomous trucks will not be ready to handle all driving tasks and conditions anytime soon. Instead, the developers of this technology are working to build a future where drivers and automation work hand in hand to transport freight more safely and efficiently."

Key findings

Certain types of limited autonomous models could emerge first, but there are still certain elements of the driving task that need to be handled by truck drivers.

Several mobility companies and tech startups have been testing self-driving trucks on highways, but for now their trucks still have backup "safety drivers" behind the wheel.

"The industry likely will move toward “hybrid” business models that incorporate both drivers and automation."
