Driverless trucks…

Welp, we’ve heard about them for awhile and here they are. I suppose all these trucks can drive around without humans. Sure, fine, it’s been proven on a micro scale and I’m sure a lot of money will be thrown at it to scale. Here’s my issue:  what about all the other things the human does? I don’t know, but, I’m sure that sitting behind the wheel is just a part of what a driver does. Maybe “driver” was always the wrong title and trivializes what they do:  get loads from A-to-B in the way the consignor and consignee require.

What’s going to fill those gaps?

PS – why in the world does a driverless truck have a sleeper cab?
