First commercial driverless truck license

The world's first commercial license for an electric driverless truck is expected to be awarded by Sweden's Transport Agency in January,according to the FT.

Powered by the Nvidia Drive platform, Einride and DB Schenker's "smart container on wheels," called the T-Pod, is considered "Level 4" Autonomous.

The vehicle also lacks a driver cabin, which can be half the cost of building a truck, offering more room for freight.
