Otto is the new self-driven truck that will put a new face to trucking in the US.

Trucks have been regarded as a major means of transportation of goods in the United States for decades. For this reason, the highways of United States are busy all the time.

The past few years have seen an alarming increase in truck accidents on highways. The truck drivers have also seen a gradual decrease in the quality of life due to increased pressure while driving. 

This is the reason Otto is going to deliver safe trucking with the help of Self-driving technology. 40 people including ex- employees of Google, Apple, Tesla, and others have formed Otto in San Francisco. 

This project started with the inclusion of self-driven kits in different trucks. The results were great. Truckers found time to relax and drive with more precision as they were able to catch a breath while driving.

The technology has been successfully tested in lab and experimental conditions. Along with that a recent test drive was done on public highway. This test drive included an Otto truck. 

Otto is trying to put a contract with the US government so that this technology can be properly introduced. The visionary experts at Otto are trying their best to ease out trucking in this condition.

This technology will be really helpful for public transportation, public highway, autonomous transportation and manufacturers. The founders of this technology have come from Google, Tesla, Apple, Cruise and other big companies. 

The drivers will be able to drive in a much relaxed way with the help of this technology. Along with that they will be able to take a power nap while the truck can drive itself automatically. Most of the accidents happen due to the tiresome routine of truckers. This technology will surely help in this condition.

Self-driven technology is about to come in cars, it is time that trucks have it as well.
