Move Aside Google Car, The Self-Driving Truck Is In Your Rear-View Mirror

I give credit to Google for pushing the car industry to wake up and start working on self-driving cars. However, Google and the automotive industry, in general, seem to underestimate the potential of autonomous trucks, especially given a troubling and worsening driver shortage crisis, noticeable impact these trucks can have on reducing total cost of ownership, and comparative ease with which the technology can be implemented in heavy commercial vehicles and, perhaps in the future, making mega trucks (approximately 60 tons total tractor-trailer gross weight) a reality.
