Para realizar las pruebas las cabinas irán ocupadas, y es que en el momento que los vehículos llegen "a las autopistas de la región, tendremos conductores altamente capacitados en las cabinas para monitorear los sistemas y tomar el control si es necesario". Un "operador" humano está presente en el asiento del conductor de la cabina del camión, explicó la empresa, que actualmente limita estos viajes a Arizona.

La compañía de transporte Uber anunció que ha comenzado a utilizar su flota de camiones de conducción autónoma para transportar carga de manera regular a través de Arizona para múltiples clientes, tras haber concluido un periodo de prueba que inicio en noviembre pasado.

Con esta acción la compañía está cada vez más cerca de su meta: sustituir a los humanos adentro del compartimiento del camión.

Uber tampoco especificó qué productos se transportan.

Ni Uber ni Waymo han determinado el número de camiones que han puesto en marcha para realizar las primeras pruebas de carga real en Estados Unidos, aunque afectará directamente a uno de los sectores clave de la economía norteamericana.

Los camiones de Uber pueden recoger y dejar remolques en los centros de transferencia de la compañía. Allí los vehículos autónomos se encargan de los remolques para los viajes de larga distancia.

Se trataba de un tráiler de 18 ejes, dotado con cámaras, radares y sensores para examinar el camino. El vehículo recorrió unos 200 km y entregó 2.000 cajas de cerveza.

El grupo de tecnología avanzada de Uber, que supervisa todos los esfuerzos de auto conducción de la compañía, dijo que sus vehículos -de pasajeros y de carga- han conducido colectivamente dos millones de millas. Según sus impulsadores, esto permite realizar viajes más largos y en lugares aislados, además de que ayuda a reducir las tasas de accidentalidad.

Es particularmente relevante para plataformas como Uber, o su principal competidor en Estados Unidos, Lyft, porque eliminaría el costo del pago al conductor, que representa la mayor parte de sus gastos.
