The USPS is testing self-driving mail trucks
Gizmodo reports that the United States Postal Service will begin testing self-driving mail delivery trucks. The USPS is partnering with San Diego-based startup TuSimple in a two-week pilot program to deliver mail between Dallas and Phoenix. The program will involve five round trips totaling over 2,100 miles through major interstates spanning Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. The USPS notes that there will be a driver and engineer on board to intervene if necessary.
