    They keep saying robot trucks are right around the corner. But those are the same people who have had almost 35yrs to make computer controlled engines run right consistently… I thought Boeings computer controlled planes flying hundreds of people into the ground would have been enough to put an end to that whole techie wet dream, but apparently not.

    They can't be any worse than the trash we have now. At least robots won't be tossing urine and bags of their feces on the parking lot.

    although funny failures, they are still in the infancy stage. as with anything else, they will improve. thing here though, is the operating area of the country. large inner cites, or suburban, or farmland/country.

    too many variables in each location, and for sure, wrecked robots more so in the inner cities, with the punks, thugs stealing, and destroying them.

    there will be a day, when (if any of us are still living), we will look back at these follies, and say out loud, "i didn't think it would ever work".....

    Platooning will happen long before full on autonomous trucks, at least I hope it will.

    With this scenario, if robots take over order taking, preparation, delivery, and robots take over OTR trucking, where are the humans suppose to work to be able to buy anything? Social Security at age 18???

    The article made me think of this line from The Big Bang Theory.

    Today, it’s a Chinese food retrieval robot. Tomorrow, it travels back in time and tries to kill Sarah Connor. - Sheldon Cooper

    :laughing-guffaw:Yeah, maybe, until the power goes out from too many electric cars. Hey, if they are anything like Bender, it could save this industry, "Bite my shiny metal axx",,
