What does autonomy look like for Daimler Truck and Volvo Group?

Two of the world’s top truckmakers share updates into their autonomous freight roadmaps. By Megan Lampinen

Autonomous driving could revolutionise freight movement and logistics, dramatically improving safety and efficiency. Visions of driverless trucks barrelling down highways 24-7 could indeed become reality, but represent just one possibility for automation.
