IVECO boss allays fears of driverless trucks


IVECO’s commercial director Gerrit Marx has criticised the industry for talking about driverless trucks, describing the use of term as irresponsible, as it acts as a deterrent to new drivers.

“We shouldn’t scare them with science fiction stories,” he said. “In reality fully robotised trucks on public roads are still several decades away.”

However, Marx went on to say that level 5 fully autonomous trucks operating in controlled environments and carrying out repetitive task, are a reality. 

“But we will still need truck drivers for a very long time to come,” he said.
