Like the sign on the bar promising free beer tomorrow, self-driving vehicles and automated construction equipment always seems to be five years away. Allan Rutter of Texas A&M’s Transportation Institute joins CounterTalks to update us on where this technology is now and how far away it might be from your rental store. We discuss the technology behind self-driving vehicles; the places and ways they are being used now; what the immediate future of automated trucking might look like; where automated construction equipment is likely to be most effective; safety; liability and much more.
