Autonomous driving technology will completely change the way that modern infrastructure operates and will lead to more vehicles on the road like the 'R-Truck' autonomous truck. Created for shipping purposes, the 'R-Truck' does away with the driver cabin altogether because of the autonomous operation that is controlled by AI in order to increase efficiency as much as possible.

The 'R-Truck' autonomous truck is the design work of Yaroslav Yakovlev and comes as a response to future elimination of traditional truck drivers in the mix. This shift, although it will leave many drivers out of work, enables designers to create aerodynamic vehicles that are ultra-efficient because they don't require the same amenities as those that are operated by human drivers.
