Daimler demonstrated its vision Thursday along a stretch of the A14 autobahn near Magdeburg in eastern Germany, the culmination of years of innovation. It says the vehicle — called the Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025, a nod to the year the carmaker hopes it will be introduced — is capable of responding to traffic while driving completely autonomously down a freeway at speeds of up to 85 kilometers per hour, or 52 miles per hour.

I mean, how on Earth did Daimler miss the obvious and perfect promotional summer movie tie-in? This is not the “Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025” — that sounds like a name Microsoft would come up with. This is Optimus Prime.
