Echo: Self-driving trucks are coming

Otto is a company working to put systems in trucks so the vehicles can go on auto-pilot while the driver naps or performs other tasks. Three trucks have already been outfitted with the technology, and went through the first test this weekend in Nevada, according to an Associated Press story.

Now, the company is looking for truck drivers to volunteer to have self-driving kits installed in their cabs to “fine-tune” the technology.

Do you think this technology would be great for the industry? The American Trucking Association hasn’t decided yet, according to the story.

Would you want to drive on a highway with a self-driving truck?
