Self-driving trucks already rolling on Florida highways

You may be sharing the highway with a self-driving tractor-trailer and never even know it.  That’s becoming more and more of a reality in Florida.

Recently, FOX 13 was invited to tag along with Starsky Robotics as they tested one of the autonomous trucks on the highway. A human was behind the wheel, but only as a safety backup.

“There’s been a systemic problem in the U.S. that it’s hard to hire and retain long-haul truck drivers,” explained Stefan Seltz-Axmacher, CEO and founder of Starsky Robotics.
