Autonomous Trucking – Are we ready? By Atlantic/Smith, Cropper & Deeley 5/15/2015 The governor of Nevada placed the license plate on the first autonomous truck and then took the first ride. Self-driving trucks are coming, although only two currently exist in the world. Interesting info: Autonomous self-driving trucks still need a driver. When the truck is driving there is a tablet for the driver - email, texting, You Tube, etc. Fuel Economy and Safety will improve with this truck. Our transportation experts at Atlantic/Smith, Cropper & Deeley will find a way to get it insured, we don’t know how yet, but we can make it happen.
