Meanwhile, there is no official date out as of now for Tesla to conduct trials of the self-driving semi trucks in Nevada.
Tesla already has quite an experience in autonomous vehicle technology - the company's "Autopilot" technology has already been implemented on its Model S and Model X vehicles. There are now millions of truck drivers in the U.S. and, as reported by The Guardian, there is a "strong undercurrent of denial" that automation and autonomous vehicles will replace any jobs.
"To insure we are on the same page, our primary goal is the ability to operate our prototype test trucks in a continuous manner across the state line and within the States of Nevada and California in a platooning and/or Autonomous mode without having a person in the vehicle", Zamani wrote.
The truck is expected to be officially revealed in September 2017, however, before that, the company is taking its prototype testing quite seriously. Then, on July 10, Zamani asked the DMV for testing license terms. Tesla certainly won't be the last to pursue autonomous tech for commercial purposes.
