STORY: The Einride Pod will soon begin operating for the first time ever on a U.S. public highway

Its Swedish developer was issued with a NHTSA exemption for testing on a strictly defined route in Selmer, Tennessee

The test program runs from Q3 to the end of 2022

Einride operated the world's first autonomous, electric freight vehicle on a public road in 2019 in Sweden

The Pod uses radar, LiDAR, vision systems and GPS, with a remote operator watching over at all times
