Trucks of the Future. Not completely trucker-free. Safety ?’s

The New York Times “Wheelies: The Future Truck Edition” gives us the list of all the automotive industries future plans. The Mercedes “Future Truck” would not be trucker free. The trucker would definitely be less hands-on but the trucker would still have to start the truck and merge it on the highway, then the truck would drive itself on the highway.

LoadSmart’s question which was quickly addressed and then dismissed was, if the self-driving trucks like the one Mercedes plans to develop by 2025 are safer or will they actually permit more leniency for truckers to be distracted? What do you guys think about the “self driving” trucks of the future? For other trucks of the future go to New York Times>>
