In last week’s post, I gave you my $.02 on how rapidly I think autonomous passenger vehicles will be in every garage due to the amazing advances in LIDAR technology.
But what about trucks? They may be coming even quicker, especially for off-road operations like ports, rail yards, and distribution facilities, where containers and trailers require frequent, around-the-clock movements. Einride is deep into testing their “Pod” device.
It’s autonomous, remotely operated, and has zero emissions. It’s also super funky looking. Check it out and see today what the future might soon look like.
Think about what it could mean for supply chains, jobs, insurance, unions, safety – what else?
