Why would they own any trucks at all?  My city government provides garbage service but they don't own any trucks.  Outsource mail delivery and stop losing money.
New fleet will have right-side steering wheel and more space to packages, the growing sector of the mail business

Funny that the article mentions one thing the postal workers would like to see in the new vehicles, "safety sensors so we know if we are going to hit anything on the road" uh.. Aren't your eyes used for that purpose?

This movie is based on the club my high school mentor Allan Cameron ("Doc Cam") formed at Carl Hayden High School.  
In 2004, a team of high school students defeated college teams, including MIT, in an underwater robotic competition.

Hmm.. I could use a new backpack.
 
New Tech: AMPL Labs Unveil New SmartBackpack for Connected Consumers
AMPL Labs is introducing a powerful solution for consumers worried about their mobile devices running out of power while on the go: the AMPL SmartBackpack, the first to integrate smart electronics seamlessly into the fabric of the bag.

The SmartBackpack provides consumers with an advanced mobile charging system that also protects portable electronic devices with shock absorbing dampers and a rain-resistant coating. Plus, its SmartSensors communicate battery charge levels and sensor info to the dedicated AMPL Mobile App. 

The backpack will make its debut at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, January 6-9. 

“Our research shows that 85 percent of consumers surveyed worry about their portable electronics running out of power at least once a week,” said Michael Patton, CEO of AMPL Labs. “We’re developing our SmartBackpack from the inside out—emphasizing design and engineering—to address their needs and empower them.” 

The charging system is comprised of seven USB connections, an internal 18.5 watt-hour (Wh) battery that can recharge a smartphone 2-3 times, and supports up to three optional modular SmartBatteries. The SmartBatteries come in two sizes: TabletBoost (which supplies another 18.5Whs and can charge a smartphone and tablet simultaneously) and LaptopBoost (which adds 55Whs and can charge most laptops directly or through the optional SmartInverter module with an AC outlet, sold separately). 

AMPL SmartBatteries feature fast-charging technology which monitors conditions inside the battery in real-time and adjusts the charging rate accordingly. This intelligent adaptive charging enables them to recharge more than twice as fast as traditional Li-Ion batteries, while also doubling their expected lifetime by reducing degradation caused while charging. 

The electronics and SmartSensors that form the brains of the system reside in a scratch-resistant molded nylon shell on the front of the bag, which also houses an OLED display and touch controls for quick access to system vitals. 

The backpack, which recently won two 2015 CES Innovation Awards, communicates via Bluetooth LE with the AMPL Mobile App, allowing consumers to manage the charging-priority of their devices, check battery levels, internal zone temperatures, drop forces, weather conditions, or even be alerted if they’ve forgotten their bag.

The quiz at the end is interesting, too.
 
Spoiler: It was the answer I always thought it was: "Because they can." I'd only add, and the article doesn't address this, many of them do it because they know business travelers will just expense it anyway and never personally worry about the charge.
