The New York Post reports that the world’s first driverless truck made its inaugural freight delivery in Sweden this week. The truck, known as the T-Pod, uses a Nvidia Drive platform to help the operator process visual data in real time. The operator can control up to 10 vehicles at any given time. Right now, the T-Pod is limited to short trips between the warehouse and a terminal on a public industrial road and can only travel at speeds of up to five kilometers per hour. The T-Pod was created out of the need to fulfill a driver shortage, as well as reduce both emissions and delivery times. The company expects to apply for more public-route permits next year and has plans to expand to the United States.
