Meet the 'highway pilot:' Peterbilt looks to 2029 when technology is a trucker's friend

Peterbilt was the only truck manufacturer with an entry in the Los Angeles Auto Show Design Challenge last fall, themed “Sensing the Future: How will vehicles interact with us in 2029?”

Peterbilt’s vision is one in which vehicles will operate together in “truly symbiotic relationships,” and truck drivers will become “highway pilots” and will lead groups of vehicles, taking responsibility for passengers as well as cargo. The SymbiotUX concept explores this human-machine interface.
