Yes. It’s another piece about autonomous trucks. But if you’ll bear with me for about three minutes, I’ll tell you a story about some folks who are doing it right. And if you’ll hush up with the yelling about “taking your job away” and read on, you’ll understand why. Three years ago, Stefan Seltz-Axmacher and Kartik Tiwari formed San Francisco-based Starsky Robotics and set out to perfect their own version of an autonomous trucking program. They realized early on that it would be pretty easy to build a program to drive trucks under controlled conditions. The hard part of commercial driving is the nuance and experience involved that is required to navigate a tractor-trailer in real-world conditions.
