Hi guys, I am from a design team at Georgia Tech doing some research on the experience of package delivery drivers and working on improving it in the future, we would really appreciate it if anyone is willing to share their experiences of driving the vehicle and answering some questions on driving and the future of delivery driving including autonomous delivery vehicles. Hit me up in private conversation if you are interested! Thanks!

Here are a few questions:

1. What are some difficulties or challenges that slow down the delivery process (for package delivery drivers)?
2. What are some changes you'll like to see in the delivery process?
3. What are your thoughts on working with a semi-autonomous/fully autonomous delivery vehicle?

Edit(1):
The purpose of the research is not to replace the driver in this situation but instead to redefine the role of the driver and better the experience.

So you want our suggestions on how to design an automated vehicle to put us out of work....Get the _____ out!

And BTW it is not a truck.

Oh and tell you idiot professor Brown Cafe is not a good research tool.

Ask you professor what he would think of a computer teaching his class for him, then get back to us.

Happens every fall. Some professor assigns a project and the kids come on here for research.

Remember Fed Ex started this way.

idiot.
  • Full frame
  • Solid front and rear axles on leaf springs
  • 700+ cubic feet of dedicated cargo space
  • DOT card required to drive
They're trucks regardless of how UPS chooses to market them.

1.Traffic and idiot customers.

2. Less technology. (ORION, Map Navigation, charging cradle.)

3. Mob justice against all autonomous vehicles.

Its a waste of time for drivers to make suggestions. Many have tried--all have been ignored.
