Starsky Robotics tests first unmanned autonomous truck on a public highway (with video)
“Starsky Robotics tested its fully unmanned autonomous truck on a 9.4-mile stretch of public highway on the Florida Turnpike on June 16. The company had previously been testing its self-driving technology on private roads.” – According to the article in freightwaves.com and its author Clarissa Hawes
“A remote operator sitting in an office in Jacksonville, Florida, about 200 miles away, handled the first and last mile operations of the truck, which was approximately 0.2 miles of the 9.4-mile trip.” Stefan Seltz-Axmacher told FreightWaves
“The operator, who has 20-plus years of long-haul trucking experience, remotely navigated the truck from the rest area onto the highway, ordered a lane change, then helped direct the truck back off of the highway, through the toll plaza, and parked it safely at its final destination”- Hawes also wrote in her article.
