TuSimple plans fully driverless deliveries in 2021

The ultimate goal, TuSimple CFO Cheng Lu told Fleet Owner, is to get the driver “out of service,” meaning they could be asleep in the cab or otherwise disengaged while the truck is running, and eventually “out of the equation” entirely. He said allowing the truck to continue running while the driver was resting or sleeping could improve turnover rates in the industry and road safety, as drivers would be more alert if and when they needed to take the wheel.
