Tusim­ple’s au­ton­o­mous lorry

Autocar - - INSIGHT -

The big­gest self-driv­ing ve­hi­cle at CES – in terms of phys­i­cal size, at least – was Tusim­ple’s spe­cially mod­i­fied Peter­bilt. De­signed for Level 4 au­ton­o­mous driv­ing, the Chi­nese firm’s three trucks, de­vel­oped in part­ner­ship with Nvidia and Peter­bilt, have al­ready com­pleted more than 10,000 miles of test­ing on the roads of Arizona.

WHEN IS IT DUE?

The aim is for the au­ton­o­mous trucks to start tak­ing pay­ing loads – ini­tially be­tween dis­tri­bu­tion cen­tres in Arizona, with hu­mans tak­ing over for the fi­nal de­liv­er­ies – by 2019.
