Could driverless vehicles spell the end of the road for truck drivers?

Autonomous trucking has become a hot button issue in the industry primarily due to the toll it may take on the current trucking workforce. However, there is an expectation that it will be fully autonomous when that may not be reality.  While strides have been made in the autonomous automobile in the last decade, for consumers the tech isn’t there yet, and for commercial uses with more burdensome regulations, it’s even farther away.

PBS recently reported on the prospect of autonomous trucking and what that means for the truckers, industry, and for the end consumer who knowingly or unknowingly relies on trucking for an overwhelming percentage of their daily use goods.
