Uber automatic driving global debut: 193 km and 50 thousand cans of beer a perfect journey – Sohu technology in August this year was $680 million acquisition of Uber automatic driving Truck Company Otto, finally in the morning 20 days this month, completed the world’s first automatic delivery truck driving task. The driver Martin Walter? Will this 18 – wheel truck from the Fort Collins brewery on interstate 25, opened the "take over" switch trucks into autopilot mode, then he got up from the back seat to the driver’s seat, fasten the safety belt close. In the absence of interference, Otto truck automatic driving 120 miles (about 193 kilometers) arrived in Colorado springs, Anheuser Busch Brewery (Anheuser-Busch) carrying 50 thousand cans of Budweiser.

At least for the foreseeable future, the driver is still an integral part of the autopilot, but in addition to dealing with complex road conditions, they can also do something else.
