Autonomous trucks may start delivery in the medium term
After years of development, self-driving vehicles are starting to become a reality in Austria. Austrian Post, one of the biggest logistical companies in Austria, has already begun testing of autonomous trucks at its logistical center in Vienna, and is expected to deploy them into production in the medium term. In addition, Austria’s motor and expressways are set to be equipped with Wi-Fi for vehicle communication by 2023, which would not only help to reduce traffic and congestion, but also enhance the safety for vehicles.
