Reason 1: Automation in open outdoor environments
Like cities, industrial sites are complex environments. A vehicle that has the ability to obey traffic lights, negotiate other vehicles, recognize pedestrians or enter a roundabout is one that can move goods from one place to another unaided.
Reason 2: Adaptability
The sensors used for automation (lidars), combined with powerful data fusion algorithms make it possible to get away from dedicated infrastructure.
An autonomous vehicle can navigate relying on what is already there. It is no longer necessary
