While most of the world's leading truck manufacturers have their own automatic / smart driving system, they are basically smart driving aids based on ACC. Fully automatic driving there are two problems, first, technology, and second, laws and regulations.

Einride took the lead in launching its own self-driving truck to provide Europe's retail giant Lidl with a new way to deliver their vehicles. Einride has partnered with Lidl Sverige, the Swedish subsidiary of European retail giant Lidl. Lidl hopes to be able to use Einride's T-Pod trucks in the third quarter of 2018 and provide the necessary permits and licenses for Lidl's proposed autonomous fleet.

One of the more unique features of the Einride program is to get the vehicle to transport less goods, but to increase the truck's frequency to increase capacity, the T-Pod is 23 feet long and weighs 20 tons.
