Replay: LiveOnWeb's 'The Race to Automated Driving'

A growing number of new tech developers are jumping into the trucking industry to try to make self-driving trucks a reality sooner rather than later. Meanwhile, truck manufacturers and their suppliers continue to pursue their own path to automation, building on the active safety systems on the market today. There’s also early movement toward a regulatory framework.

In today's LiveOnWeb program, we get you up to speed on the latest developments in automated driving technologies for commercial trucks. Our guests include Chris Spear, president and CEO of American Trucking Associations, who is a member of the Department of Transportation’s advisory committee on transportation automation; and consultant Richard Bishop, who is chairman of the Technology & Maintenance Council’s task force on automated driving and platooning. Seth Clevenger, TT’s Managing Editor/Features, hosts the program. Watch the replay above.
