In addition to autonomous cars, there are trucks that can travel without a driver. Both vehicles require the same technology. However, producing an autonomous truck can be a bit easier than producing an autonomous car because, unlike passenger vehicles, trucks travel a fixed distance and are mostly on the highway. So, their path is more predictable and easier. Also, due to their large size, trucks provide better visibility for the sensors.
