Otto and Budweiser: First Shipment by Self-Driving Truck

In what’s being called the first-ever autonomous delivery, Uber’s self-driving truck startup Otto just delivered 45,000 cans of beer for Budweiser. The robot truck drove the precious cargo on I-25 from Fort Collins to Colorado Springs, Colorado. “The driver was out of the driver’s seat during the entire 120-mile stretch of highway,” notes the video. Uber acquired Otto in August for $700 million, and the company is set to launch UberFreight, a service matching truck drivers and fleet managers with freight waiting to be shipped.
