Uber’s self-driving truck delivered 50,000 cans of Budweiser.

At least they’re not risking real beer 😉  

If you drank a cold beer in Colorado Springs in the US this weekend, it may have been delivered by a self-driving truck.

That’s where a big rig tricked out with a sophisticated system that lets a computer take control on the road delivered 50,000 cans of Budweiser last week – in what the beer company says was the first commercial delivery using the tech.

The truck that made the 120-mile journey is one of a handful of Volvo rigs equipped with tech developed by Otto, a start-up Uber acquired in August.

Unlike other self-driving systems on the market, such as Tesla’s autopilot, Otto’s tech lets drivers get out from behind the wheel altogether. NZ Herald
