Lutz is an interesting guy.. I would have liked to have seen him go into politics..
For the autonomous trucking future, who's gonna chain up the truck in winter, how it will it recognize a runaway lane that is all dirt, etc etc? As many failings as humans have, replacing a conscious able body in the truck that is able to improvise and adapt is going to be awfully tough. I could see it working in a temperate climate with perfect roads , but its a ways a way from being able to replace the body in the truck here.

Crap, I'm starting to sound like a Tesla Fan Boy
I actually have a old high school assignment that details a system that is basically a "Hyperloop", actually better than the design Elon's; compete with technical diagrams of the modular tubes, flex joints, and pumping stations.
