The Freightliner Inspiration
Freightliner has a semi-autonomous truck licensed for use in Nevada.
The lorry has the same “NHTSA Level 3” rating as Google’s self-driving car, which means that it’s fully autonomous, but that the driver still has to be able to take over “with sufficiently comfortable transition time” if the need arises. In this case, while the Inspiration Truck could drive itself for hundreds of miles without driver intervention, Daimler is framing this as a conversation around driver fatigue. According to Daimler, 90 percent of truck crashes are due to driver error, and driver fatigue plays a role in 1/8th of those crashes.
