Special report: The path to the autonomous truck – 2019 edition

A new Automotive World report explores developments in autonomous drive technology for medium and heavy trucks.

Trucking is widely seen as the first commercially viable application of autonomous drive technology. Considering the commercial incentive, the trucking sector could become the leading industry for autonomous driving. However, while technology for autonomous operations should be ready by 2025, the key challenge for participants in this space is public acceptance. Without public acceptance, investment in autonomous trucks could be futile.

This exclusive Automotive World special report looks at the current state of autonomous drive truck technology, and what the truck sector needs to do to bring the technology to market.
