Amazon already moving beyond drones

01/19/2017

Amazon wants to use autonomous trucks to deliver goods and has patented technology that allows the vehicles to self-navigate reversible lanes.

A patent granted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office details how such a network would work and communicate with the trucks.

According to Recode, autonomous vehicles could dramatically improve the speed and efficiency of package delivery -- and it could also eliminate the cost of hiring drivers.

In December, The Wall Street Journal reported that Amazon is trying to Uber-ize the way it coordinates truck shipments across the country’s largest online retail service.
