Self-driving delivery trucks. Really.

This article by Laura Northrup is about self-driving delivery trucks. Yes, apparently, at least one of them has hit the rough and rowdy road. Here's an excerpt that may pique your interest:

AB InBev and Uber teamed up last week for a ceremonial delivery: the first recorded commercial shipment delivered by self-driving truck. It was a load of Budweiser, and the truck made its 120-mile trip down a highway with no driver in the seat. There was a driver on board, of course, ready to take the controls if needed. Self-driving trucks are a long way from widespread deployment in the real world: the trip from Fort Collins to Denver required careful mapping of the route, good weather, and an early-morning trip with light traffic.
