Based on that logic, Australia should have automated trucking by now?

If by "automated trucking" you mean "kangaroo drawn sleighs" then yea you have a point. But unfortunately for Australia, they haven't innovated anything since the boomerang. They don't have cyber billionaires competing for quickly evaporating market space with the means to do so. There is no Australian Tesla.

I'd bet they could contract Tesla for trucks if they wanted...

Also aus has a lot of flat straight land in the middle which makes for easy automated driving.

I own a trucking company, not in America. The industry is so far away from being autonomous its crazy. Another 50 years maybe but certain vocational applications can never be autonomous. That one Nikola truck turned out to be a big stock market scam.

Who do you think is behind mandates in that area.

autonomous trucking industry

So any smart enough person will be able to reroute the truck with needed goods to specific place and get that goods for free. Nice.

Any technology could be used in any way, not only in intendent one. More technology is more opportunities.

PS: Unfortunately, there are no any "self-driving" cars that could really "self-drive" not only in perfect conditions. Even simpliest attempts to really use "self-driving" for something useful in real conditions too often ends like that -

Maybe though I think there’s a lot of legal issues that need to be sorted before autonomous can take off.

Because it runs over blacks?

if it doesn't run over pedestrians, then it's trivially easy to stop and steal. Autonomous trucking is a pipe dream.
