Driverless lorries to be trialled in UK
Driverless lorries are to be trialled in the UK, Chancellor George Osborne is expected to confirm in his Budget speech this month. Trials later this year on the M6 in Cumbria will see the vehicles travel in convoy, with a driver in the leading lorry, the Times reported. The tests will take place on a quiet stretch of the motorway, it added. The Department for Transport confirmed it was planning trials of driverless "HGV platoons".
