Mercedes-Benz "Future Truck 2025" drives itself (video)

The recently unveiled Mercedes-Benz “Future Truck 2025” prototype is fully autonomous, making it the first driverless truck in the world, the company says.

In the following video, you'll see the truck negotiating highway traffic. There's a man in the driver's seat, but he's not touching the steering the wheel. Instead, he writes some notes on a clipboard and surfs on the internet using his tablet.

While the test drive was fairly short (5 km), Mercedes-Benz has shown how autonomous driving technology can successfully be applied to large trucks.
