A fleet of self-driving trucks rumbles across Europe | Computerworld

A caravan of about a dozen self-driving, semi-trailer trucks for the first time finished a trip across parts of Europe this week.The autonomous truck challenge was organized by the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment and included rigs from six manufacturers, including Volvo, Daimler and Volkswagen subsidiary Scania.

The convoy journeyed from manufacturing facilities in Belgium, Denmark, Germany and Sweden to the port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands.A Scania semi-trailer traveled the longest distance — more than 2,000 miles and across four national borders. The network of authorities involved in the pilot project included federal governments, roadway authorities and consumer groups from six nations.
