Last week Volvo Group unveiled a self-driving refuse truck that learns where to pick up bins in a neighbourhood after just one session of been ‘trained’ by a manual driver.

In Singapore, meanwhile, convoys of driverless trucks carry freight between terminals at the city’s bustling shipping port, while, in Germany, truck-maker MAN and operator DB Schenker plan to test twotruck platooning with HGV drivers behind the wheel – rather than testers – on the A9 motorway between the company’s Munich and Nuremberg depots by spring 2018.
