Panel Discussion: Demystifying the Autonomous Truck Landscape - The Facts, Half-Truths, and Science Fiction
Tracks: Operations, Safety & Compliance
As self-driving truck developers move forward with pilot deployments and continue to lay the groundwork for broader commercialization, there remain a myriad of questions around the realities, benefits, and concerns about autonomous trucks.
