Deloitte Fellows: USPS Has Savings Opportunity With Autonomous Vehicle Tech

MailTruckThe U.S. Postal Service stands to save money from having fewer truck accidents and more fuel efficient  vehicles if the agency takes advantage of automated car technology, according to a commentary posted on Nextgov.

Samra Kasim and Matt Caccavale, senior consultants and GovLab innovation fellows at Deloitte & Touche LLP, write the agency has more than 215,000 vehicles nationwide that traveled more than 1.3 billion miles in 2012.

Kasim and Caccavale believe the agency could design routes around traffic patterns and delivery needs and share the driverless vehicles with other agencies and the private sector.

California, Nevada, Florida and Washington, D.C. allow driverless vehicles on the road and 16 states have similar legislation proposals.
