Title Can Autonomous Trucks Solve the Driver Shortage?
Date Posted 8/12/2015
Description A number of resources indicate autonomous trucks may have the ability to solve the truck driver shortage. One of the reasons for the driver shortage is that young people don't see truck driving as a fascinating career. By improving drivers' quality of life, making the job easier, plus the technological factor, younger drivers may find this as an attractive option. While these autonomous technologies and strategies may indeed help alleviate the shortage, it won't be seen, at least not in the next couple of decades.
