How could autonomous vehicles be used in the postal delivery sector? The USPS OIG has identified a variety of use cases for autonomous vehicles in delivery. Jessica Raines and Jacob Thomases from the USPS OIG join me to discuss their research and findings, including:

  • Different kinds of automated vehicles
  • Impact on the workforce, good and bad
  • Capital investment barriers
  • Role of the postal delivery officer in delivery with autonomous vehicles
  • Potential time savings that can be achieved with autonomous vehicles
  • Current USPS autonomous vehicle trials
  • Mobile technology controlling autonomous vehicles
  • Mobile parcel lockers
  • Platooning
