Autonomous Trucks

Out of a population of 3.5 million truck drivers in the U.S. – 3.1 million of whom are commercial driver’s license (CDL) holders – some 38.75% are minorities according to data compiled by the American Trucking Associations (ATA).

Hispanic men make up the 2nd largest demographic of the truck driver population at 14.6%, based on 2014 data.

Motor carriers are embracing and increasing the diverse ethnicity of the current workforce to fill their gaps in employment.

It's imperative to ensure our community has a voice in the oncoming Autonomous Trucking revolution.

This is just one example of many in which the Latinx community will be affected by Artificial Intelligence research, engineering, and automation. To learn more, check out our medium publication.
