Daimler’s highly automated truck hit the public highways in Germany.
A recent study undertaken by AXA UK found that there would be significant economy-wide business and consumer advantages with the advent of automated or ‘driverless’ haulage and logistics vehicles, including delivering nearly £34bn in savings to the haulage industry in the UK alone. If passed on, that would mean £150 of savings on grocery spend per household annually.
Singapore will be deploying driverless vehicles at its ports. The “Ministry of Transport will test “truck platooning” technology for moving containers between port terminals”.
