 That’s right folks, if any of your friends and family are big rig drivers, tell them about this. 

On October 20th, 2016, the world’s first-ever commercial shipment using self-driving technology took place in Colorado.

A driver-less big rig truck drove 50,000 Budweiser beers down I-25 from Fort Collins to Colorado Springs. The human driver watched in the sleeper cab. 

This self-driving technology was invented by Otto, a San Francisco-based startup, recently purchased by Uber for $680 million dollars, that is making trucks driver-less.

The truck had three lidars on and in the cab, radar on the bumper and high-precision cameras on the windshield. 

Just remember: over 70% of cargo in the USA is moved every day by 1.5 million American big rig drivers, real-life humans. Those 1.5 million could be out of a job by next year. 

If you remove the human element from trucks, you remove the backbone of America. What will we have next, bionic farmers?
