Daimler Introduces Self-Driving Truck For State Of Nevada


CNN

According to the Associated Press, it’s the first ever self-driving semi-truck licensed to drive on public roads — in this case Nevada’s highways — not only for testing, but business, too.

“Daimler Trucks North America LLC debuted the self-driving big rig Tuesday night with a drive — and a driver steering — atop the Hoover Dam on the Nevada-Arizona border,” writes the AP.

Taking a line from astronaut Neil Armstrong, Dr. Wolfgang Bernhard of Daimler Trucks and Buses told the crowd bused to the site from Las Vegas for a news conference that they were about to witness “a short drive for man and a long haul for mankind.”
