Tesla’s Semi troubles can be parked for the moment, with JD.com unveiling its own self-driving truck. The South China Morning Post reports that the e-commerce giant unveiled its autonomous truck technology this week, the latest in a long line of Chinese tech companies looking to replace human drivers. So far, the truck has accrued some 17,000 hours of test drives on public roads. Should Elon Musk get his Semi back up and running, he shouldn’t feel too threatened. JD’s truck appears only a little larger than an aircraft galley trolley.
