Next ? -- Will we be able to "Carry" on these autonomous vehicles????
Oh boy, wouldn't that be funny!!! We need two big tractor tires delivered. Now that would take a pretty big drone!
Can you imagine Autonomous Police Cruisers"' getting hacked and ending up somewhere on the side of a mountain..
They call them Helicopters///
Well buddy, I do, and I will remember this comment, boy are you in for payback.
My SXT Plus became autonomous last winter, I turned Left and it decided to go back whence we came..
But, I love you. And you know it.
Autonomous Gifts -- What a gift for the homeless, a 2 hours ride, in the warm, bring your own snacks..
Do these autonomous vehicles stop running when it snows? Who cleans them inside if I spill a soda etc..? Do I tell anyone?
Think about it.Look at the technological marvels that have occurred over the last 100 + years or so. Cars, electricity,planes,space flight,computers etc. Who's to say that we won't be imitating the Jetsons at some point in the future ? My concern is that historically,technology happens much faster than our ability to control it.
How would that be better/easier than just getting them ourselves. No thanks!! The cost of that would be so prohibitive. (Referring to the helicopter comment)
Well the way the politicians argue over the costs of infrastructure now.... don't worry about self driving cars any time soon... the costs of upgrading all the roads and electrical grid to make it possible will have the government dragging its feet for years to come.... the USA will be last in the world to implement it...
Think about the pod concept. A manufacturing company will have two or three main designs to build. The simplification of the product lends itself to robotic manufacturing.
Think about the number of auto industry workers that would be replaced. Then think about the number of support industries, auto dealerships, repair garages, tire shops, parts retailers, that would add to the unemployment line. Then you have the oil industry. Drilling, transport, refining, distribution, the closing of gas stations and corner store/gas stations.
Then you have the support industries for ALL of the above.
Just think about the number of people that would lose their jobs. Think about all the career opportunities that would disappear. Should this occur, it would probably lead to a financial collapse.
Now don't get me wrong. I'm not a doomsday prepper or waiting for the apocalypse. If I were, I doubt I would have paid way too much for a car that has no real purpose in life other than to put a HUGE smile on my face whenever I drive it. I have, however, spent my entire career in manufacturing and understand the effect that a major change in the demand for a product can make. Both good and bad.
Of course, just my 2 cents worth.
Something nobody else has thought about... Will these vehicles be traveling to "The Hood" Wherein said vehicles will receive the best treatment available? Right! Endless pods being dismantled for scrap to supply the drug habit of the low-life's. I can picture it now. Like a scene out of Judge Dredd.
I hope my pod has stripes and a spoiler!
so when someone whips in front of the Autonomous car/truck in heavy traffic ,ya know bumper to bumper at 50 mph + . and you look in your mirror and you have excatly 1 inch of clearance and you blast the gas and pull in front.
so what happens then the Autonomous car/truck brake checks everybody and causes a 50 car pile up... can't wait.
By that time, people will be so fat and helpless from a lack of movement, it won’t matter who’s watching.
My SP can out run it!
I don’t buy it. Americans are to hooked on their cars and the lifestyle it affords. We should make sure to teach our young about freedom, car culture and Mopar.
