Season 2 Episode 3 - Self-driving Trucks: Savior or Scourge for Trucking?

Driverless trucks are still a few years off when you talk about the long-haul sector, but they are already in play on other markets, such as drayage and terminal tractors. We are making real progress toward a time when self-driving trucks become commonplace, but there are still lots of questions: Which applications does early adoption make the most sense? How will the regulators make rules regarding such complex technology? Are they really a solution to the driver shortage? Richard Bishop of Bishop Consulting is an automated vehicle industry analyst, and he has been a watcher and player in this space since the early 1990s. He joins Jim Park in this episode to shine the light on this mysterious technology.
