    Daimler Trucks’ Inspiration

    April 18, 2017 12:00AM by Jim Park

    LAS VEGAS — What happens in Las Vegas is supposed to stay in Las Vegas, but that certainly not the case with Daimler Trucks’ recently introduced Inspiration Truck. It’s the autonomous commercial vehicle that has taken the world by storm. Literally. Daimler Trucks invited more than 200 journalists from four continents to cover the event, and stories have appeared in over 500 newspapers and on TV news shows all over the globe. Today’s Trucking was there too, of course. And we had our chance to ride in the truck. We were not allowed to drive it at this event because it requires some driver certification, which there wasn’t time to procure. We did come back from the launch event with this video of our test drive, with Equipment Editor Jim Park in the right-hand seat.
