Public-private partnership pushes for safe and efficient deployment of AVs in Texas

While they may not be all that noticeable, autonomous trucks are decked out with sensors, cameras, LiDARs and radars to give them a view of the environment around them. But that view can only go so far. Just like a human driver, that AV may not be able to see debris in the roadway miles in advance.
