Uber self-driving trucks making deliveries across Arizona since November

Uber has been sending self-driving trucks on delivery runs across Arizona since November. .

After testing its technology earlier in 2017, Uber began contracting with trucking companies to use its own autonomous Volvo big rigs to take overloads as they traverse the state, it disclosed.

In Uber‘s current program, human truckers meet the self-driving truck at the Arizona border, which then takes their load across the state and hands it off to another human trucker. An Uber employee rides in the driver seat during the autonomous trip.

The trucks only drive outside of cities on highways.
