Otto used its retrofit-ready, self-driving truck hardware to complete a drive between Fort Collins and Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Leave it to America to use its first self-driving truck to deliver beer.
Back in May, startup Otto promised a retrofit kit that could turn a traditional semi into a self-driving vehicle.
The truck relies on cameras, radar and lidar to remove the human from the equation.
Of course, a human is still required for safety's sake.
On this trip, the human merely watched the system as it piloted the Volvo truck down I-25.
For now, the truck is only capable of driving itself on the highway.
When it comes to urban driving, a human is still required.
It's really only meant to reduce the drain that comes with long stretches of highway driving.
Maybe next time, it'll transport better beer.
