Being a freight driver in Denmark, I don't see myself being unemployed before I take my pension in about 30 years from now. I deliver to about 30 different customers a day, where I am doing the unloading. One pallet here, three pallets there, a package to a residential area or a wooden box to a shop. It would be impossible to deliver driverless because: A) The customers are used to the service we provide. B) You would have a greater risk of wrong deliveries IF the customers were to unload themselves. C) You would have a higher risk of theft, as some customers might be tempted to take their competitors goods. D) The customers might not have the equipment to unload - whereas I carry both a pallet trolly AND a normal trolly. E) Some companies have their delivery entrance from a different street than what's on the manifest. I know that, a computer doesn't. F) I know where exactly to go when I reach the customer. A computer doesn't. Yes, on long haul trucking from warehouse to warehouse, self driving trucks might be a good idea, but for the final delivery to the customer - at least in my country and probably most of Europe - it would not work. There is simply too many obstacles.

We can't funtion without them but we pay them like shit.

From here there is a bright future for those who became a specialist in Computer science as the demand for technological advancement skyrocketed but even then.. After its done, the technology we created might replaces the creator themselves. Maybe there is a future where you can depend solely on an A.I that can solves technical problems, creates computer programs or network systems with higher efficiency and more consistent pace. Maybe there even be an A.I that can fix other A.I or even better, There might be a future where an A.I can creates an upgrade on their own system. When that time comes, Even us Computer science specialist and robotics expert can be a dying breed and we will be like the humans in Wall-E eventually..

The issue with self driving OTR trucks isn't just the driving, but dealing with hazards and possible bad situations. On top of that, making turns correctly, backing in trailers, and being generally aware of how big a semi with trailer is and how they handle. Unless trailers get sensors put on them all companies would have is a self driving car that could haul a trailer. In my honest opinion self driving platforms that move containers around are a closer solution to the trucker shortage, than autonomous semitrucks are. Just my opinion though.

40 yrs of driving and THIS is how 1.5mil ppl learn about long haul? Sadly yes, it's a race now, since nobody young wants to replace us old guys, and the nerds can't get the autonomous stuff to function fast enough. There really isn't any happy median however since us live drivers will always be underpaid and the wow-we tech stuff will always be over priced and promise more than it's capable of. Good luck with that everybody!

Can’t have self driving trucks. Look at the colonial pipeline Cyber attack. You hack an 80,000 lb truck and crash it into a crowd of people or perhaps hack an oil tanker and drive it into god knows what. It’s an awful combination that will likely have catastrophic impacts. Use an alternative energy source, land hold and cruise control is fine, but there needs to be a professional driver ready to take over at all times. This should be obvious.

wolfrig2000 Oy oldin
It's not worth teaming. EVER. The system that would solve the otr/sleeper problem would be hubs, if there was a hub every 300 miles, a driver could drive a loaded trailer from a hub to another hub, drop that trailer, pick up another trailer going the opposite direction, you wouldn't need a sleeper but could cover 600 miles every single day and be home every night for every driver. This also makes it so you can use electric trucks as you'll park them for 14 hours in the same space every night and some runs could be automated, you can have a self driving truck pull out of Hub #1, arrive at Hub #2 and just pull in, have a minimum wage employee with no experience drop the trailer, push a button for the self driving truck to pull away and go do it's own thing, then have a crane or yard driver move the trailers for unloading

Its an overly simplistic look at the financials behind electric trucks. You need to look at the lifecycle as a whole - capital costs of electric vs diesel trucks, difference in maintenance costs (e.g. replacement battery packs, servicing, etc.). Just looking at fuel/electricity consumption is not adequate to draw the conclusions in this video.

The reason why lorry drivers is a dying breed is because it's a shit job, your treated like shit by the customer and the company you work for and by the police, the public and the ministry, when you get to the drop point or load point, you have to wait, if your early you have to wait, if your late the world ends and you have to wait... All good lorry drivers have found a better way to earn a living, the industry has got what they deserve.. Drivers shortage.

I live in Australia and I have not head of any trucking companies buying or using electric trucks yet. They would be very expensive to buy. And since you have to pull several tonnes of weight you would certainly need more batteries to supply the energy needed to do this than you would in an electric car. Again with the severe shortage of public charging points for electric veliches in this country they will be hard pressed to find one! And then you will have to wait for the batteris to be recharged which would take several hours for sure! So the truck driver will lose plenty of money while he waits for the batteries to recharged. And then Electric veliches can only go about 400 km before they need to be recharged again. And also about 80% of the power in Australia still comes from coal. so if you have to recharge 10 times to get from perth to sydney how long would the trip take you assuming there were recharging stations along the way. Maybe 20 days! compared to the 4 or 5 days current trucks take! These facts put a big hole in the argument that eletric trucks will happen any time soon!

LOL. This documentary doesn't get any better when I try watching it again. It's quite oversimplified. 1. Teamed driving--even if drivers are married--is still not easy or indeed even possible after 32 to 48 hours on the road. You cannot get any decent sleep. It doesn't work. Period. 2. Self-driving or completely autonomous driving is never going to be permissible on ANY public roads, highway or city. People will sabotage the auto-driving vehicle and nudge it into the ditch or worse yet, a concrete railing. They simply don't GAF. And that's especially true if they're running late to a work site and some robotic monstrosity is blocking their progress. You know this will happen. You know it. 3. I can see the emergence of some sort of Uber micro-freight logistics. Because OTR trucking is longer a lucrative career. And the accident rates involving long haul trucks are skyrocketing. The long haul truck might get phased out entirely. And replaced by some sort of small van with tandem drive axles. 4. There are no highly refined amenities at truck stops. Far from it. They might have a few snacks and soda drinks. The showers are reportedly g-r-o-s-s. Dental facilities? Please, bro.

10:10 Tesla’s Semi may cut the energy costs by half but it’ll need to recharge often. So, I guess unless they develop tech to charge as fast as it takes to fuel up, Tesla trucks’ll be slower for long-haul (500 mile range vs avg OTR truckers doing ~700miles/day)

Half of what he's saying makes no sense. This will never happen for 75% or more of trucks on the road. A load from NY to LA would cost $550. Great, every company will be willing to spend $400,000 dollars or more on one of those trucks to make $1000 per week, maybe. That doesn't include break downs, repair costs, insurance, etc. This stuff is a joke. It won't happen for a long time yet, if ever.
