Uber Self-Driving Trucks are Now Hauling Freight
UBER SAYS IT IS USING SELF-DRIVING TRUCKS TO HAUL FREIGHT IN ARIZONA
(CNN) – Uber announced Tuesday it has begun using self-driving trucks in Arizona.
But not in its ride-sharing service.
The technology is only being used in its freight program, which matches traditional truck drivers with individual hauling trips.
Trucks using Uber’s driverless technology do still have a human driver behind the wheel as a backup; just in case it’s necessary.
But Uber plans to have the trucks operate without people eventually.
