The United States Postal Service (USPS) is set to test the self-driving technology to dispatch mail as part of a two-week program.
According to CNBC, the USPS has joined hands with a self-driving truck company, TuSimple, to run the pilot-program in late May. As part of the program, a self-driving truck will deliver mail between distribution centres in Phoenix, Arizona and Dallas, Texas.
The pilot program will only have five runs and the autonomous will have a safety engineer and driver inside to monitor the performance and take over if required.
