According to some media reports, Tesla is working on self-driving technology for electric semi-truck. The technology in which a lead truck is followed by a convoy of autonomous trucks moving according to the guidance by the lead truck.
Companies like Uber and Waymo are also working in this field. “Platooning” as it is called, doesn’t require very advanced technology to be employed in trucks but it can improve the efficiency of the trucks by a huge margin.
Although Tesla has confirmed that it is working on an all-electric semi truck but the details are yet to be revealed. Tesla will also be meeting with the California DMV to discuss autonomous trucking technology. Reports also say that Tesla also has plans to meet authorities in Nevada to discuss the testing of two prototype trucks.
