Autonomous trucks, the road to driverless

Autonomous vehicles could make a significant inroad into reducing cargo crime by addressing the challenges of driver shortages and drivers taking mandatory rest breaks in unsecured parking places – but what has been achieved so far? What operational, regulatory and infrastructure hurdles still need to be overcome? And what are the longer-term possibilities?

In his presentation, James will provide insight into how the major autonomous trucking companies are planning to bring this groundbreaking technology to the market and the value it will bring to fleet operators and the industry as a whole.

James has worked at Scania Commercial Vehicles for 7 years, initially joining as a Product Manager for Long Haulage trucks and, for the last 3 years, working in the Autonomous Solutions team. Today, he is responsible for the strategy and roadmap for the roll-out of autonomous vehicles on public roads, working with partners and customers to understand the real world application of autonomous trucking technology and how it will integrate into the logistics network.
