Regarding the Uber Robot Truck that delivers 45k cans of Budweiser, I think you've left out one very important point - liability in the event of an accident. Would love for you to post on that topic as this is going to be a very big deal going forward. I've read articles saying the robot should be granted personhood (as if the threat of jail to a robot means anything).
The liability would fall to the owner of the truck (or assigned renter). The truck is a tool of a human just like any other tool.
It makes no more sense to grant "personhood" to a truck any more than it makes sense to grant personhood to a hammer, a ballon or a gun. There is a lot of confusion out there about robots and automation but they are just tools that attempt to make life easier for humans.
