In February's Land Line Magazine I wrote about robotic trucks and efforts to develop a truck-driving robot. So I was more than a little surprised walking through the West Wing of the Kentucky Expo Center this week at MATS to bump into recruiter Josh Parker and his newest recruit.
I'm not sure how R2D2 can reach the pedals, or even if he will need to. But he was really eager to get going, of course. I think his pal Threepio was off talking to a logistics outfit.
