Focus On… Peterbilt’s “Driver Assist NOT Driver-less” Truck

Bill Kahn, manager of advanced concepts at Peterbilt, doesn’t really like to call the two demonstration vehicles “autonomous,” although they would qualify as a Level 3 autonomous vehicle under U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration classifications.

Kahn characterizes the technology more as the “cruise control of the future” and a “stepping stone to autonomous vehicles.” Peterbilt engineers have dubbed it “advanced driver assist systems.”
