So it’s finally happened, according to this report from The Verge. Uber’s Otto subsidiary, acquired for $680m in August, has developed hardware for trucks to drive themselves. A truck made a 100-mile trip from a weigh station to Colorado Springs, a trip which took a couple of ours with the driver monitoring its performance from his bunk. The cans of Budweiser even had “delivered by a self-driving truck” message printed on them by brewer Anheuser-Busch, which was reported to have got in touch with Otto shortly after the company launched commercial operations in January.
