(CNN) - A self-driving beer truck recently completed a delivery.

The beer truck was created by Otto, a self-driving technology company.

The company says it recently completed the world's first delivery by a self-driving truck.

Working with beer giant Anheuser-Busch, Otto hauled more than 50,000 cans of Budweiser from Fort Collins, CO, to Colorado Springs, CO, a 120 mile journey on the interstate.

A professional driver on the trip monitored the self-driving system.

Otto says it hopes its technology will allow long-haul truck drivers to rest while their vehicles continue to drive and make money for them.

    Scientists are noticing fewer and fewer moths, ladybugs, fireflies and butterflies, but they can't quite quantify what's happening to flying insects because they never measured how many bugs there used to be.
