The self-driving truck has debuted, becoming the first of its kind to receive an autonomous license for use on public roads.
Freightliner is the commercial truck division of Daimler AG, which also owns luxury marquee Mercedes-Benz. The automaker recently attracted attention unveiling its autonomous Inspiration Truck - the first semi-trailer truck to be licensed for testing in the U.S. - in Las Vegas, NV.
Unveiled today in Las Vegas, this big-rig features a Highway Pilot system that lets it drive itself during long highway hauls.
