” Plus.ai said one of its vehicles had hauled a refrigerator trailer full of butter 2,800 miles from California to Pennsylvania in less than three days.

It relied on sensors, cameras, radar and Lidar (light detection and ranging) technology and computer vision software underpinned by artificial intelligence.

But a driver and engineer rode along. [Of course!]

” “This cross-country freight run… shows the safety, efficiency and maturity of our autonomous trucks, which are already delivering freight for other partners several days a week,” said co-founder Shawn Kerrigan.

“Continued advances in our autonomous trucks will make it possible for these quick cross-country runs to be the norm in the future.”

Of course.
