Aurora will test its fleet of self-driving cars and semi trucks in Texas

Texas is now firmly one of the top states in the US for AV testing. In addition to Aurora, the state is also playing host to Ford / Argo, Uber, self-driving truck startup TuSimple, and Waymo, as well as a remote-operated driverless shuttle in service at Texas A&M University. AV startup Drive.ai also operated in the Dallas region before going bust and getting acquired by Apple.

Texas A&M University is modifying its self-driving pilot program in the city of Bryan, Texas, to have humans remotely monitor and operate the shuttles starting in September, making it one of the first commercial deployments of teleoperation technology in the country.

They should make rock trucks the first fleets to convert. At least the load is inert.

Their biggest hurdles in design were getting the self driving vehicles to be able to change exits at the last minute going 75 mph on the PGBT while flipping the bird to the driver next to them.

A buddy of mine was wanting to turn in his Peterbilt when a rock hauler hung the back of his trailer and flipped the truck.
