driverless truck makes a beer delivery in Colorado

Full article and video

A self-driving truck built by Uber's unit Otto made a pioneering delivery of beer in Colorado last week, Otto announced on Tuesday.

The 18-wheel semi-trailer loaded with Budweiser made the 120 mile (200 km) trip from Fort Collins through the center of crowded Denver to Colorado Springs using only cameras, radar and sensors to read the road.

The truck carried a professional driver, but he simply monitored the progress from the truck's sleeper berth behind the driver's seat.
