These particular "self-driving" trucks require a human to have their hands
on the wheel at all times (and they do). (It is the same thing level of automation
as in any Tesla that you can buy today. ) Uber seems to have left that detail out
of the story, and TechCrunch just publishes press releases as "stories" apparently.
That's one reason there is no actual footage of these "self-driving trucks",
just a cartoon graphic clip that shows stick-figures moving on a roadmap.

It's not "self-driving" really, it's more like a sophisticated cruise control.
Also, doesn't work at all if there in rain, snow, or if there is dirt on the road,
or if the vehicle gets dirt or mud on it, or...or. Yeah. Mostly doesn't work.

Just Uber trying to hype.
