Self-driving trucking companies aren't immune to the human labor shortage impacting the trucking industry. Two upstarts are working to ensure they develop and retain the human work force needed to keep their automated trucks rolling. TuSimple and Starsky Robotics this week outlined plans to start programs and career paths to meet those needs. TuSimple said Thursday it has worked with Pima Community College to co-develop a first-of-its-kind certificate program for truck drivers that would confer upon graduates a title of autonomous vehicle driver and operations specialist.
