Uber’s self-driving trucks are making deliveries in Arizona

Uber announced today that its self-driving trucks have been operating in Arizona for the last couple of months.

The company said it has two main transfer hubs in Sanders and Topock, but other than that, Uber is being pretty tight-lipped about the operation. For instance, it hasn’t shared how many trucks are in use, how many miles they’ve driven, what they’re shipping or how often drivers have to take over for the autonomous system, and has only said that the trucks have completed thousands of rides to date.

You can check out how the system works in the video below. The idea is that a regular semi will pick up a delivery load from a shipper and drive it to a transfer hub. There, one of Uber’s self-driving trucks, and a safety driver, will take the trailer and transport it over the longest leg of the trip. Once the truck nears the delivery destination, it will again head to a transfer hub where a conventional truck and driver will pick up the trailer and take it to its final stopping point. Shipment details are handled by Uber Freight — the app the company launched last May that connects shippers and truck drivers.

Uber made its first delivery with a self-driving truck in 2016, when one of its semis transported 2,000 cases of Budweiser from Fort Collins, Colorado to Colorado Springs. Since then, Embark has joined the self-driving semi shipment game, delivering Frigidaire appliances between Texas and California in 2017 and making a long-haul trip from California to Florida earlier this year.

Uber’s self-driving trucks are a result of the company’s acquisition of Otto in 2016, a deal that eventually led to a major legal dispute with Waymo. Uber and Waymo agreed to a settlement last month and are reportedly now considering a partnership.

  1. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems
    as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something
    informative to read?

  2. Hey there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or
    if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to
    get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly
    appreciated!

  3. Hiya, I am really glad I have found this info. Today bloggers publish just about gossip and web stuff and this is really annoying. A good site with interesting content, that’s what I need. Thanks for making this website, and I will be visiting again. Do you do newsletters by email?

  4. This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job.
    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that,
    how you presented it. Too cool!

  13. I have discovered that costs for on-line degree gurus tend to be a fantastic value. For instance a full Bachelors Degree in Communication with the University of Phoenix Online consists of 60 credits at $515/credit or $30,900. Also American Intercontinental University Online comes with a Bachelors of Business Administration with a full school feature of 180 units and a tuition fee of $30,560. Online degree learning has made having your higher education degree far less difficult because you could earn the degree from the comfort of your house and when you finish from office. Thanks for all the other tips I have really learned through the site.

  14. Your style is so unique in comparison to other people I
    have read stuff from. Thank you for posting when you’ve got
    the opportunity, Guess I will just book mark

  19. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now
    each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment.

    Is there any way you can remove me from that
    service? Appreciate it!

  20. It’s the best time to make some plans for the future and it
    is time to be happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I desire to
    suggest you some interesting things or suggestions.
    Perhaps you could write next articles referring to this article.
    I want to read even more things about it!
