    As technology evolves then you as a worker should evolve as well.

    It's not that simple. Technology evolving the way it is has reduced the available jobs to do. That's a big problem given that the popualtion is increasing.

    Im just saying if im a truck driver and i see this article im going to take heed and learn a new skill that will put me ahead. maybe I'll learn about ai and computing or managing infrastructure, anything but sit there and be ass out when the time come for them to lay me off

    The Article makes it seem like this is bout to happen tomorrow ...... are those trucks going to be able to back up into loading docks .....I'm pretty sure that the delivery spot will have to be outfitted with technology to help these trucks ......our highways will have to be equipped to guide the trucks ......companies are going to have to replace trucks ......this sounds costly .....only big companies will be able to jump on this ......not the smaller ones who don't have disposable cash

    So are the trucks going to unload themselves? At the destination maybe someone inside the truck can or people at the place may do it.

    If this concept prevents accidents on the road then great. Truck drivers drive tons of miles and can fall asleep.



    http://www.roboticsbusinessreview.com/article/frito_lay_and_wynright_put_robots_on_the_docks
    ... The new Wynright Robot Truck Unloader or RTU is the newest member of the loading dock crew. Robotics Tomorrow reports the “Wynright RTU is ideal for boxes, bales, containers, tires and a variety of other products. One of the first of its kind for materials handling, it is a self-guided, autonomous robot that can be used to unload a wide range of floor-loaded products on semi-truck trailers or ocean freight containers.
    rtu

    “The Wynright RTU’s advanced perception technology allows it to navigate into the trailer or container and sense its surroundings, as well as the size and shape of cases or even irregular products. It then unloads them onto a telescoping 24V motor driven roller conveyor to transfer product back into the warehouse or distribution center.”

    “We have used different robot suppliers, but Motoman was willing to allow us to integrate their software with Rockwell’s, which we feel is a tremendous benefit,” explains Tim Criswell, divisional president of Wynright Robotics. “This enables us to use Rockwell’s ControlLogix PLC for the entire operation, rather than needing a separate dedicated controller for the robot.”

    The RTU is mounted on a three-wheeled triangular base with two wheels in the front, which are driven by Allen-Bradley servos to control direction and speed.

    In addition to brawn and never tiring out, the Wynright RTU has additional skills well suited to life on a loading dock.

    The machine can automatically scan barcodes as it removes cases from an 18-wheeler; it can track the weights and sizes of cases; it has a bypass process to handle odd-sized cases; and a paging system to alert operators when errors occur.

    Eliminating the human element of OTR could probably double the profits of companies. Which is one of the main hindrances these companies face, so it ain't hard to imagine it catching on.

    I don't know about 3 million truck drivers, but truck drivers, truck stop employees, weight stations, truck washers, truck manufactures, company terminals, diesel mechanics, hotels, porn stores, and other businesses that eat off that road life will have to adapt. And a lot of people are gonna lose their jobs.

    How many truck drivers have you met? How many of them do you think can switch from driving trucks to computing?

    Good luck. Coding isn't so bad depending on what language you're learning.

    Google is working on an automated driving system also. It is still going to take time to tweet the technology though. If it were to happen it would probably take even more time for the change over.

    The drivers will eventually be replaced, but their will be need for operators, mechanics, technicians, software developers, IT Security Specialists, Etc. hopefully training will be offered for truck drivers to integrate into new fields.

    Trains drive themselves, Humans only check in at stops and make sure brakes and speed is applied in certain spots. Most accidents happen when humans take over control. My pops was an engineer for 30 years at Union Pacific.

    My pops was an engineer with CSX for about 25 years. In fact right after he passed this happened:

    Everybody that knew my pops said he was just taking a train out for one last ride.
