One of a areas of unconstrained pushing record with a many intensity to have a near-term and thespian impact stays trucking: There’s a flourishing miss of drivers for long-haul routes, and highway trucking stays a comparatively basic (though still really challenging) form of pushing for AV systems to tackle.
