Yes. He was the emergency driver for the test. We do not need automated trucks on the road, there is so much involved in driving a truck that really should have human involvement. With all the hacking going on now we do not need 50 ton killing machines roaming the highways. Not to mention all the accidents they will cause when people pass them and see no driver. How will DOT pull them over and harass the driver when there is no driver? How will the police even pull them over to check for contraband? How will truck drivers support their families?

Total Bullshit.

This will never happen. And show me a drone that can keep up with a truck
that is supposedly doing top speed along a highway with no driver and sensory equipment.
Also, if there's no driver, you don't need side mirrors.

Bullshit

Uber are about to find out what Union power really means.

You start removing truckers jobs, the truckers will start removing
family members of Uber managers from their cushy little homes
and smash their heads in with iron bars.

It's gonna get bloody.

why would you use 2 different names to comment in the same thread...?

show you a drone that can keep up with a truck? okay, here's one: [youtu.be]
but what makes you think this was filmed using a drone? I mean considering that you can see the reflection of the vehicle with the film crew in it in the chrome of the semi's mirror housing ...

side mirrors are required for the driver to park the damn thing at the dock...

bullshit? why so pessimistic and what's with all the vitriol all the time with you? relax...

Union power? possibly ...

Charlie, cool your tool. I see way too many things that drivers have to do when driving a truck that computers just can't do. One example is, who is going to put fuel in these trucks? I don't think a truck can go across country without refueling. I just don't think a computer can cope with driving in city streets especially NYC. How will a computer know it ran over a racoon and not a human? There will be no more answering with a blast of the horn when a child signals the driver.

Coal trains have been unmanned for 20 years now. Bit of a difference but the point is, if BIG business was to cut costs, it WILL happen.

Trains run on tracks so they need little intervention. Trucks are different story though. There are so many instances on highways and city streets where human interaction should be needed. I for one do not want to see these massive killing machines running on our roads. In order to have them automated there will be a need to remotely access these controls and with that comes the possibility of hacking with deadly results.
