The world’s first shipment by self-driving truck, a 120-mile journey with no driver in front seat.

“Our professional driver was out of the driver’s seat for the entire 120-mile journey down I-25, monitoring the self-driving system from the sleeper berth in the back.”
Otto is designing a new approach to modern transportation, starting with self-driving trucks.
