Technology for car hauling? It’s just happening

From the White House published the report -between 2.2 and 3.1 million car, bus, and truck driving jobs in the US will be eliminated by the advent of self-driving vehicles.

Stephen Hawking says that that rise of artificial intelligence is likely to extend job destruction deep into the middle classes, with only the most caring, creative, or supervisory roles remaining.

At the same time, Guruduth Banavar VP and Chief Science Office at IBM mentioned:

“If you were in the same room with me and I had a whiteboard, I’d draw a graph,” he explains. “If you think of the distribution of expertise as a bell curve. If the high-end of expertise is on the right side and the low-end is on the left, there’s a whole lot of medium-level expertise in the middle. That’s going to shift to the right. What we consider today to be high-level expertise jobs will be taken by people who use machines in the future to fulfill some of the expertise needed.”

Actually, technological advances over the next two to three decades and will ease up the life of owner-operators.

As technology increasingly automates basic driver duties, the transportation industry will see:

  • Increase the efficiency of  car hauling operations
  • Reduce the accident rate of car hauling and transportation in general
  • Less stressful and tiring for drivers, dispatchers and transport managers

David Heller, head of regulatory affairs for the TruckLoad Carriers Association accentuates the fact that with automation he still doesn’t see the replacement of the person behind the steering wheel, and truckers will become a lot more efficient.

We already the efficiency in driving a regular vehicle with

  • Basic Assistance Technology
  • Automated Transmissions
  • Cruise Control with predictability
  • Sensors & Cameras to integrate automated braking

Automation increases and the transition to self-driving trucks will happen, but owner-operators will stay remain a businessman, a technician, a skilled driver, a salesperson that will manage the operational stuff.

The real truth is innovation is here, it’s just happening without asking your permission.

That’s why we do actually do technology as this is how everything is going to work in future.

Car hauling is not going to disappear, it’s only to get more automated and efficient with top notch technologies.

So get on onboard, adapt to it and start opening yourself to learning all the stuff you need to not be one of those 2,2  – 3,1 million.

As always, be great!
