Guest: Jack Roberts, veteran trucking journalist

In 2014, the first announcements from truck manufacturers were made about plans to start offering fully autonomous trucks by 2025. With a little less than four years left before this deadline, it has become clear we’re not going to see trucks without drivers by then.

Listen to this new episode of the “Eyes on the Road” trucking podcast as host Evan Lockridge speaks with trucking journalist Jack Roberts about why this has happened and if we are truly ever going to see fully autonomous trucks on the roadways. They discuss what has to happen for autonomous trucks to become a reality including there being big operational changes in the trucking industry.
