    I am skeptical. CG has come so far since its introduction, it can seamlessly render plastic and metal into reality without detection from human eye. Only biological tissue tends to betray it these days. I've yet to think a computer generated animal was real.

    That said, I don't doubt autonomy. Yet I wonder if anything will open up in the stead of this. Will something else make itself available by means of this?

    "Truck drivers possess the critical skills that self-driving trucks may never match — like backing into a tight dock, navigating a busy industrial yard, or moving axles on a trailer," Uber wrote in a November blog post. Having a human driver at each end of the trip works around the limitations of fully autonomous trucks.

    What's the point??? So where are all these drivers going to go once this takes over. Nobody is talking about that. We're so quick to produce this technology and we're not thinking about the people it's going to really hurt.

    While I applaud the idea, there are major obstacles in the way of implementing this. In Canada for example. Winter months? Good luck seeing the lines on the road in many areas. While some major routes are well plowed and clean, this isn't always the case, especially during snow fall…blizzard or otherwise….ice buildup between lanes covers the lines, wet snow can obscure where the true lane is to that of the curb or the lane to the left. Black ice is also another issue to deal with…one that even seasoned drivers will find their skills tested going through such areas, where you can spin right off the road at 10km/hr just as easily as you just did at 100km/r moments before. Been there, done that….wasn't impressed.

    I doubt I would trust this thing outside of warm climate areas where road lines are rarely covered by ice, or worn out from scraping ice off and wandering lanes of winter conditions.

    They’re not going to be completely empty trucks. They’re going to need someone to blame when bandits stop the truck and steal the cargo.

    I believe the dry van loads will go self driving first. Chemical tankers, flat beds, log hauling and oversize loads will need a driver behide the wheel.
    hiring drivers will be limited in the Future. Meaning thier will be no high turn over .

    When these types of vehicles are fully implemented. Over 30 percent of the entire world will be unemployed due to automation. With a worldwide population set to hit 10 billion. It will be an ugly world to live in!

    I have been browsing online more than 3 hours nowadays, yet I by no means found any fascinating article like yours. It’s beautiful price sufficient for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content material as you probably did, the net can be a lot more helpful than ever before. “I think that maybe if women and children were in charge we would get somewhere.” by James Grover Thurber.

I actually like what you have got here, really like what you’re stating and the way in which you assert it. You are making it entertaining and you still care for to stay it wise. I can’t wait to learn much more from you. This is actually a great site.
