    I think it was only a 500 mile trip between 2 locations on roads that were in great condition. Lets see how it does on some real roads

    It's purely my opinion that;

    No matter what deal the executives of all companies agree to. Eventually they will break their own agreements. Only to pad their pockets and grow the bottom line. These companies don't care about their employees. They just move the resources about in ways to generate more profit.

    I foresee hard pressed immigrants and even crooks taking advantage of these self driving trucks. The freight will be easy pickings for them

    The rise of the machines is inevitable...there will be two kinds of people on this earth...those who service the machines and those who power the machines. The tech giants have this all mapped out, soon, we will all be given our choice...change and adapt...or become soilent green!

    From what I’ve read they have a driver and a technician on board during these trial runs~I believe there’s a video in another section on TTR

    First they came for line haul gigs, and I did not speak out -
    because I didn't drive line haul

    Then they came for long haul routes, and I did not speak out -
    because I didn't drive long haul

    Then they came for regional routes, and I did not speak out -
    because I didn't drive regional

    Then they came for me - and there was no one left to speak for me
