Report: Tesla developing self-driving electric truck

Tesla's upcoming electric semi truck will be able to drive itself

But a report in Reuters adds a new, if somewhat unsurprising, wrinkle to the mix: the Tesla big rig is probably going to have self-driving capabilities.

Based on emails between Tesla and the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) that were obtained by Reuters, it appears that Tesla wants to test the driverless truck in Nevada.

Tesla is developing an autonomous long-haul, electric semi-truck, according to Reuters.

Tesla is set to unveil its all-electric truck, known as Tesla Semi, next month and the automaker is apparently now seeking to test its prototypes for platooning and self-driving in Nevada and California. Tesla offers semi-autonomous features on all of its current models in the form of Autopilot, which costs an additional $5,000 at the time of purchase.

This is relatively familiar territory for any company making serious investment in self-driving tech: Uber acquired Otto, a company founded by former Google self-driving vehicle team members dedicated to autonomous trucking, and it continues that work under its Advanced Technologies Group. Musk also stated that in the short term, Tesla's trucks would require a driver. A lead vehicle with a human driver could be used, with autonomous follow vehicles that cut down on the total need for drivers and increase overall efficiency.
