Driverless Trucks Get More Autonomy in China

A lack of restrictions in China is allowing several companies in China to work on developing driverless technologies and vehicles for long haul trucking.

Since drivers account for about 40% of the costs a trucking company has, it will can be a huge win if a company can safely figure out the driverless truck and tap into the $300 billion Chinese trucking industry.

In the US the trucking industry is even larger and has an estimated value of $700 billion.
