Tusimple’s autonomous lorry
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.
