Uber launches into the autonomous truck market between hubs

News of the 12/03/2018

Uber confirmed that it is conducting experiments in the field of autonomous trucks and intends to be part of the market through its dedicated subsidiary Uber Advanced Technologies Group.

Currently Uber performs real-state testing in the state in Arizona, which is the most permissive in terms of autonomous transportation in the United States. For now the company specializes in autonomous transport between hubs where drivers will then take over for delivery.

These experiments are for the moment carried out with a driver on board because the state of Arizona imposes it in the event of unforeseen events but these trucks will be entirely autonomous.
