The press-Secretary of the DMV’s Jessica Gonzalez (Jessica Gonzalez) told Reuters that on Wednesday the official representatives of California had a meeting with Tesla management to discuss the company’s work on driverless trucks.
Plans to develop the production of electric truck CEO of Tesla Elon Musk announced a year ago. In April, he announced via Twitter that will show a truck on an electrical course in September, then repeating his promise at the shareholders meeting in June. But he never talked about plans to use in upcoming electric truck technology Autonomous driving.
Tesla is actively developing technology for Autonomous driving their cars in the premium category, which is used in a more affordable electric car Model 3.
At the moment no company was tested in the Nevada self-driving trucks without being in the driver’s cab.
