We’ve all heard/seen the self-driving cars but how many knew that the transportation industry was getting a makeover as well. Yup, that’s right transport trucks are on the list of self-driving vehicles and have been for some time.
The ultimate goal is to have all (different brands) of them communicating with each other. They would end up driving in one long convoy, really close to one another avoiding wind resistance and saving a chunk on the gas bill.
The big question on allot of minds is how many jobs will this affect, will truck drivers become a thing of the past. More than likely one day they will but until all the bugs are worked out you’ll probably see enough bored people sitting behind the wheel, probably playing a game on a tablet and sitting there just in case of an emergency. Very similar to the pilots in commercial airliners these days as the planes pretty much fly themselves.
To me another important question is how secure will this be? How long before we start getting reports of someone hacking the system? Before they take full control of vehicles with something as simple as a smart phone (check out the Facebook video below) and use it to drive the truck to some undisclosed location…
Thank you for reading our blog about Transportation Tech from Mr. Tutor-Tech, we provide Website Design in Milton, Ontario located just outside the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) close to Mississauga, Brampton, Oakville, Burlington. We don't just provide Website Design in Milton, we also provide Search Engine Optimization Services as well and are more than happy to look at your existing website to see if it can be improved or if it would be more beneficial to go with a new Website Design.
Our blogs revolve around technology and the future of technology as its rapidly changing and will continue to dominate our lives. We did try providing classroom type tutorial services in technology but have recently shifted our focus to Website Design and Search Engine Optimization instead, the classroom is now closed. Please feel free to visit our tutorial section though if you'd like to learn more about computers or technology, the course material we created is now available for free!
We have only the basics of Website Design available there, as there is a lot to know in this department we felt a basic understanding would help you in understanding what happens and how it happens but unless you work in the field you are much better off leaving this type of work to the experts, especially if you'd like to see the best results from a Website Design. Please feel free to Contact Mr.Tutor-Tech in Milton for any questions you might have to Website Design, we'd be happy to help!
