The Future of Trucking: The Daimler Freightliner

Posted on and modified on


Here’s a truck so easy to handle it actually drives itself! The Daimler Freightliner Inspiration can make long highway drives easy with its self-driving magic. It can read road markings and even coordinate with other trucks in their convoy all through a combination of radar, wifi, and sensor cameras.

But don’t panic: you’re not out of a job. The big rig still needs a driver!

The Daimler can only self-drive on a highway: it can’t change lanes, it can’t overtake, it can’t hack a city drive. The poor beast can’t even exit a highway by itself. Oh, and it can’t park either. So that’s still your job. And besides, they’re not legal in Australia…. Yet.
