Default USPS starting a two-week test to try out autonomous mail delivery trucks

Bots filling the free spots.

Quote:
San Diego-based startup TuSimple said its self-driving trucks will begin hauling mail between USPS facilities in Phoenix and Dallas to see how the nascent technology might improve delivery times and costs. A safety driver will sit behind the wheel to intervene if necessary and an engineer will ride in the passenger seat.

If successful, it would mark an achievement for the autonomous driving industry and a possible solution to the driver shortage and regulatory constraints faced by freight haulers across the country

autonomous driving on highways seems to be significantly better and more ready for market. which makes sense, if you have advance cruise control, you can use it a lot further on a highway vs the streets.

a lot less variables on the highway.

There’s going to be many upset dogs since they will have no one to chase.

As a USPS letter carrier, I feel that I should contribute to this thread.
