International R-110, not driverless transportation.
On the other hand, you could buy a truck like this, and drive it, which would force you to pay attention to the world. (The world outside, the highway world, the street world, the world of weird noises from the engine, the water pump, the transmission, etc.)
I think this International Harvester, which I saw again today, as cool as ever, was the first Autoliterate Truck of the Year, way back when.
