Working to create a driverless truck corridor from Mexico to Canada

Testing of driverless big rig trucks could travel on Route 83 from Mexico through the United States to Canada, with a feasibility study currently underway. The additional travel corridor would allow grain, food and other supplies to make the multi-national journey while relieving logistical stress on trains.




The appeal of driverless trucks would make it safer due to no worry of driver fatigue, even though a human truck driver would be available to take over as needed. Self-driving truck technology was recently approved in Nevada, with other states interested in seeing results from the trials.


"We're hopeful that, working with the Canadian government, the Mexican government, the United States, we can create some kind of automated way... (to) streamline that process of border crossings," said Marlo Anderson, of the Central North American Trade Corridor Association, in a statement published by the Canadian Press.
