Self-driving semi trucks hitting the highway in Nevada

HOOVER DAM, Nev., May 6 (UPI) -- Daimler Trucks North America said the self-driving Inspiration semi truck unveiled atop the Hoover Dam is headed for the highways of Nevada.

The trucks, from Daimler subsidiary Freightliner, were introduced to the public Tuesday in a ceremony atop the Hoover Dam and the manufacturer said two of the vehicles are being taken for test-drives on the highways of Nevada, one of only four states and the District of Columbia to have laws on the books allowing autonomous vehicles on the roads.

The trucks use radar sensors and cameras to monitor surrounding traffic and lane lines on highways. Daimler said the trucks are driven by humans in city and suburban environments, but the truck can take over and allow the driver to focus on other tasks during long stretches of highway.
