Freightliner Inspiration Truck with Highway Pilot becomes world´s first autonomous truck to be granted a license for road use in the State of Nevada Brian Sandoval, Governor of Nevada, and Dr. Wolfgang Bernhard, member of the Daimler AG board responsible for Trucks and Buses, take first autonomous drive on a U.S. highway near Las Vegas
Initial research findings of Daimler Trucks show autonomous driving relieves the strain of truck drivers
Dr. Bernhard: “The license for road use in the USA marks an important milestone in the story of the autonomous truck.”
Martin Daum, President and CEO of Daimler Trucks North America: “After successfully introducing our Super Truck study, we again underline our technology leadership by presenting the Freightliner Inspiration Truck, which demonstrates how our society, environ-ment and economy can benefit from autonomous driving trucks.”
Today Daimler Trucks became the world´s first manufacturer to be granted a road license for an autonomous heavy-duty truck. The first journey in the so-called Freightliner Inspiration Truck, which took place on U.S. highway 15 in Las Vegas, was made by Brian Sandoval, Governor of Nevada, and Dr. Wolfgang Bernhard. The truck is equipped with the intelligent Highway Pilot system for autonomous driving. The state of Nevada licensed two Freightliner Inspiration Trucks for regular operation on public roads. Daimler Trucks is the global leading truck manufacturer and, with the Freightliner brand, also the biggest producer in the U.S.
“Our Freightliner Inspiration Truck is the world´s first autonomous commercial vehicle to be licensed for road use. Our achievement here underlines yet again our role as a technological pioneer and demonstrates our consistent dedication to develop the technology for autonomous long-distance driving to series production standard. I am proud of this extra-ordinary achievement by the Daimler Trucks team,” stated Dr. Wolfgang Bernhard, Daimler AG board member responsible for Trucks and Buses.
Highway Pilot system to be developed to series production standard
Transport in the future must be even safer, more efficient and more networked – this is the aspiration that Daimler Trucks has expressed in the new Freightliner Inspiration Truck. In July of last year, Daimler Trucks provided the world´s first demonstration of an autonomous truck in action when the Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025.
Spectacular world premiere near Las Vegas
The world premiere of the Freightliner Inspiration Truck took place near Las Vegas, in front of representatives of the media, government as well as business and finance. Trucks are by far the most important means of transport in the U.S. In 2012, trucks transported around 70 percent of all freight tonnage in the United States. This way, a total of 9.4 billion tons of freight were moved by trucks. Globally, the road freight transport is expected to even triple between now and 2050. Autonomous trucks provide the opportunity to cope with this growth in a manner that harmonizes economic and environmental needs.
“Nevada is proud to be making transportation history today by hosting the first U.S. public highway drive for a licensed autonomous commercial truck. The application of this innovative technology to one of America’s most important industries will have a lasting impact on our state and help shape the New Nevada economy,” said Gov. Sandoval. “The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles has been closely monitoring the advancements being made in autonomous vehicle development and reviewed DTNA’s safety, testing and training plans before granting permission for this demonstration of the Freightliner Inspiration Truck.”

    Car drivers …. let's all play "cut across the front of the self driving truck". If we're in a bad mood, it will make us feel better …. and we know that the truck will apply it's brakes to avoid us . We can do as we please to these trucks . Such fun

    So I guess most jobs will go towards fixing the robots that are breaking down…. The automobile gave the US nearly 1 million new jobs for humans…. more robots and electronics means more stuff breaking down and needing to be repaired. Stuff breaks down. My Graphics card did just last month.

    The mix with self driving vehicle and those drive by human seem to me very difficult. The trafic fluidity would be affect by to many "extremely safe" self driving vehicle. But I don't know 😀

    It's advanced cruise control. I love it. Truckers will still have a job. Just less burden. You need a professional behind that wheel. Period!

    so what happen when the truck gets a flat or runs out fuel? will it recognize weather conditions or emergency situations?

    I tell you this. when winter time comes for 6 months those trucks can't drive them self, also what about bad storms. This option will only be available to the driver if the conditions are safe to drive self

    when nobody has jobs or money to buy anything, they wont need any driverless trucks to deliver goods. Every body will be back to the old days when they lived off the land on farms and raised the food they ate, and made their own clothes by hand. If things don't change and we don't get our manufacturing back and put up the Trump wall to keep the Mexicans out that drive down wages and steal jobs by working for peanuts, we're in deep shit. Call your Senators and tell them to allocate the funds in the budget for the Trump wall that he's trying to get. We can get the money from Mexico to reimburse us in the future when Trump gets their asses in a renegotiated trade deal.

    I'll admit, I like the lights on it, but the fact that it is self driving makes me shit bricks, and the best part of driving for me is ACTUALLY OPERATING THE VEHICLE!!! and now companies are trying to take that away WHAT THE FUCK!?!

    I think the purple lights in the front are a DOT violation . How is a state trooper going to pull this thing over, to write it a ticket? Then there is no one to give the ticket to.

    Truck driving jobs will be completely gone in the next 20-30 years and we'll start to see a decline in as little as the next ten. First will be taxi cabs, long haul trucking, then inter city deliveries and trash pickups. Basically, any low skill job that someone can engineer a robot to replace you with will be gone at some point. Don't believe it? Two reasons for automated trucking the government is backing it and second the companies are investing in it. Why would they pay you 40-70k per year when they can get twice the performance and cut your job at the same time? A secondary education will be required in the next 50 years to get any job which will be higher skilled employment only. Period. Need to buy a Tesla, go to work and then send your car to work too as taxi service for extra income. People come up with lots of scenarios they think they haven't thought of why driverless cars won't work and these computers are already better drivers than us now. There isn't a scenario they haven't already programed in. So you shouldn't relax if you're a truck driver, you need to plan for the future and stop relying on a job that will be obsolete in the next 20 years, unless you'll be retired by then. It sucks but that's progress. This stuff was already predicted 20 years ago in movies, seemed like science fiction at the time but it's here.

    Auto-drive has been possible for the freeways since the early 1980's. A lane-keeper and anti-collision system coupled with GPS can handle freeways.

    With change comes change. Yes we will not need as many drivers. You will need some for quite a while during changeover, and some routes, like the winter ice roads require maintenance people, if not drivers.

    And yes, someone has to handle loading and unloading.

    Fact is, even if you keep current requirements for human drivers, and phase them out only by attrition, the savings in insurance and damages will nearly pay the "driver."

    The reduction in damage to infrastructure is a huge savings (autonomous vehicles can report road conditions and use other vehicles data to avoid damaged areas.

    Autoves can also travel much more closely together in safety than humans, greatly increasing traffic capacity.

    Autoves move at more constant speeds than humans, minimizing traffic blockages and stop and go traffic. This means even higher carrying capacity for the roadway.

    Perfection isn't a requirement. To be a commercial advantage, all a system has to do is as well as the average–that raises the average. Current systems are better than the average human, if only because they don't get tired, bored, have to pee or get sick. Most humans aren't trained to react properly to multi-vehicle or loose freight accidents, and the untrained freeze. In routine things, humans lose interest, one-third of us are hallucinating at any time (Yeah, I found that one researching hallucinations I got from bupropion.)

    Your abilities are reduced by illness before you are symptomatic, and any illness should make you reconsider driving.

    So if these self driving trucks still need a driver at the wheel, are drivers simply going to be paid much less? since they won't actually be driving.

    The video of OTTO's unit is much more impressive.  This video never showed the driver out of the seat.  Otto shows their driver out of the seat. 

    I have one question,   Over the past decades the U.S. Govt has a done an incredibly efficient job of lowering standards in education.  Whos gonna fix them when they break, and they will break.   There are not enough mechanics capable of repairing the current technology.

    garbage. propaganda. pretty landscapes, no in cab, continuous vid. Only traffic is simulated. Sing your praises when a "glitch" kills someone you love. Or a virus. Or a software hijack. Your computer can't run correctly 100% of the time, but "believe us, the vehicle will". nonsense. just more dehumanization.
