Diesel Power - - Power Bits -

THE FIRST do­mes­tic high­way trip in South Korea fea­tur­ing a self-driv­ing (but nav­i­gated) semitruck is in the books. Hyundai’s Xcient truck trav­eled nearly 25 miles in one hour be­tween Ui­wang and In­cheon as a sim­u­lated test of cargo trans­port, and, ac­cord­ing to a com­pany spokesman, the truck’s tech­nol­ogy “en­abled it to main­tain and change lanes dur­ing the nat­u­ral flow of traf­fic, de­tect lane changes made by ve­hi­cles in front of it, nav­i­gate through tun­nels, and per­form a com­plete halt or ac­cel­er­ate ac­cord­ing to road traf­fic.”
