Uber's driverless truck makes its first delivery: Automated vehicle crosses Colorado on a 120-mile BEER run
- San Francisco startup Otto outfitted the truck with self-driving technology
- It travelled from a weigh station in Fort Collins to Colorado Springs
- A trained driver monitored the vehicle on its journey from the back seat
A self-driving truck has made its first commercial delivery run in the US, carrying a vital cargo to a depot in the Rockies: thousands of cases of beer.
The automated semi took to the open road as part of a partnership between the brewers of Budweiser and ride-hailing firm Uber.
It made the 120-mile (190 km) journey from Fort Collins to a depot in Colorado Springs, without a driver behind the wheel - a first for commercial cargo delivery and driverless technology.
