For autonomous transportation to become reality — particularly in trucking and freight — an ecosystem of partnerships must evolve around technology providers, traditional carriers, logistics services, and suppliers to the chain. In this seminar, representatives from Waymo Via, a leading autonomous driving technology company, and J.B. Hunt, one of the nation’s foremost transportation logistics companies, will share their blueprint for this evolution. The panelist will explain the Waymo Driver, Waymo Via’s autonomous driving solution, and key factors to commercializing an autonomous freight service, as well as share early learnings from the companies’ autonomous freight delivery trial runs in Texas.
