UPS self-driving delivery trucks are on the road

688 ratings | 34635 views
UPS has been secretly hauling cargo back and forth between Phoenix and Tuczon, Arizona for over three months, courtesy of their minority stake in automated trucking startup TuSimple. The tractor trailers are outfitted with nine cameras, as well as LiDAR sensors, those spinning contraptions often attached to the roofs of self-driving vehicles to help them "see."

Hey lady, automation is great, but I don't want a machine coming to my front door. Nor do i want to walk down to the street or go to the post office ect. If it didn't get it's daily oil change, that qualifies as, "bad breath."

I drive tractor trailers for ups. We make a lot of money and have great benefits. We also work a lot of hours. Were union so it is interesting to see how this plays out
flipgurujn (2 months ago)
I think city tractor drivers are safe for a while until 5g is fully up and running. Ups freight will be greatly affected. They were already forced a terrible contract. The union can't really do much if ups decides to do a displacement/layoff. They will tell the drivers to work back in the hub taking combo jobs. They will either take it and the older drivers will retire. They will push out the part timers have them lay off. Don't rely on the fact that you're union. The auto industry is unionized and that didn't help them when automation took over and a mass of them were layed off.

All truckers do is try to control the road instead of doing their job. They neurotically try to eyeball you in their side mirrors before letting you pass. Automated, driverless trucks are a GREAT thing. I'll all for them.

If you have problems with truckers on the road then their is a 97% chance that you are doing something wrong. I hope your family is crushed by an automated truck and your the only survivor

I love how everyone is worried about an AI driving when upwards of 94% of all traffic accidents are directly caused by human error. When did the faith in actual human drivers go up so much. Humans are dumb as shit. They drink, text, sleep, eat and other dumb shit while at the wheel.

Self driving trucks have no compassion, no real human judgements UPS will face many lawsuits . Folks do not realize there are motorist that hate trucking . They purpose to make truck drivers crash by pulling stunts. A pro ( human) driver will make critical adjustments and avoid all stupidity of angry motorists. A robot has no compassion on human life and will kill others vs have the heart to avoid ones stupidity. Again its going to be a lawyer's dream to see these ( mad max) trucks on the road. Smh

If this happens said hello to ww3 so no truckers that’s going to create a chain reaction of lost jobs no more truckstops, weight stations, trucking schools, DOT officers, dispatch that’s only in the trucking industry after that comes school buses, public transportation, uber, lift, the crime rates will go 0 to 100 real quick. Do autonomous vehicles need insurance

Taking away jobs to make more money but then people don't have jobs to buy stuff for them to ship so they won't make money. Then people will hack the trucks and have them deliver to where ever and rob them or just staight up rob them because there isn't anyone there to stop them from doing so. But then again how are they going to fuel up without someone to do it for them, and if its electric then how will they charge unless they have solar panels or some type of machince that charges itself from the tires rotating while it is moving which is unlimited and self sufficient or something like that. Just seems to me like we should let humans continue to drive the trucks.

I'd say trusting a human to drive right is the dumb thing. Human error is the cause of upwards to 94% of all traffic accidents.

Why would you need a actual human driving when an actual human has written the program how to get from A to B, AI is just a fancy way of saying autopilot and they will have commands for all possible scenarios. I mean when it has an accident or a flat tire im curious how they are going to fix that but i assume they have a mobile mechanic that will just drive to the truck repair it and it continues its journey

@yutuniopati Jesus some drivers actually enjoy their jobs and make good money. Real shitty to say its good and get over it. Not everyone has had the same circumstances as you. You think a driver with 3 kids can just get up and move to another state to get a job?
yutuniopati (3 months ago)
@Joe Villa At the beginning of this year I lost my main business, I had no income for several months. I worked hard and now I begin to see extremely good result in my new business. Life is not easy, if you don't move your a** at the end you will always be crushed. And million of drivers loosing their job is a good thing, it mean that millions of people will be alocated to more elaborated job and thus it will increase the rate of innovations all around the world. Time change, people also have to change.

Nope, these people will found an another job created by these massive automatisation. They just need to make effort like people who were working as book copier were replaced by the firt ever printer.

No robot can dodge the stupidity of 4 wheelers or the common craftiness of stage runners that put the driver in a collision path . I assure you I can beat any robot. I have the one thing a robot does not posseth . Sound mind and a heart.

@MrTwinsrule Let me guess… you trust Trump and God and in that order. You know nothing about the mechanics of self-driving vehicles, do you?
MrTwinsrule (3 months ago)
True that ..cell phone use in cars is suicide. But professional drivers can spot them from a mile. Robot drivers can not. And think about this, it's the fear of the robot tractor trailer drivers that will hopefully put the fear of God in those that are distracted. Because they hopefully will understand the robots will not respond to thier stupidy, and run them over. I suppose also the scale houses will also be off limits to the robots? Never seen a robot get out and take that walk to the state police building to pay the fine ? It's never going to work imo. Truck drivers are human And it takes skills and dedication to navigate a tractor trailer in and out of places. I would love to see a robot back a 53 foot trailer in some of our stores small alleys and holes. I say it would look like a war zone after it did. At least the common carriers from Swift pick up the damaged parts of thier tractor after they destroy everything. Ha ha Lol

@Mode Liukas the automatic transmissions do not work in a tractor. Unless your carting light freight. We are trying the Volvo automatic trucks and they are failing on our 44 k loads . Think about it 44k is too much .. Smh

@Mode LiukasIts very easy , pay them the due wages . I'm a 22 year veteran. When I started driving professionally the trucking industry was booming. Then companies started reducing the wage. And the CDL drivers were put in a lower rate. Over the years the DOT has tightened up thier regulations on those that have a CDL . That is why the push on illieage immigrants with free license and CDL waiver. If they could pass this , the fed laws on them are not as extreme. Hence cheaper drivers. However not too safe imo. The other alternative for a ( cheap) driver is a robot , So both alternative choices put innocent lives on the US roads in jeopardy. I say make the trucking industry a leader in quality professional drivers and pay them the due wages . I make killer money driving for a major food distribution. But its based on my flawless record of operation , and that I'm an American with great health and abilities to navigate a 53 foot big rig in any situation. Folks you get what you pay for.

Are they also self-crashing?

What happens when Idiot Jack tries to stop this automated truck? I also hope that these trucks don't ever malfunction on the road. It takes about 20 seconds or more for a truck to downshift.

They will save millions of dollars by not hiring drivers anymore when the technology is fully tested.
