A lot of trucking involves more than simple point to point, and a lot of climates will not support computer controlled vehicles with the shit tier technology being used now.

That will just leave the most skilled truckers with a job. Automated trucks, even for just simple point to point, will reduce the demand for drivers.

If a redneck can learn to drive a truck with 90%+ safety in 8 weeks why wouldn't a program be written to outperform the redneck driver?

A robot beat Ken Jennings on jeopardy.

Trucking is an unnecessarily dangerous method of transporting goods in a post digital age.

Ask wal mart if they would prefer autonomous trucking as opposed to paying out tens of millions in settlements due to "tired" driver

I imagine 99% of a truck driver's job will be automated in the near future. At most you will have "equipment monitors" who have to press a button here and there and get paid minimum wage + compensated travel. I suppose that would be a good job for people with no qualifications or experience.

I would pay good money to watch a computer perform a u-turn in a semi-truck to avoid a low bridge on a busy road

You'd probably pay less than a Truck drivers salary...

It just wouldn't go through there. Truck routes aren't known for having low bridges. Drivers ignoring signs are known for hitting them.

Well someone will still need to be in the truck to make sure it's doing what it's supposed to do. Those people will obviously be paid less than a skilled truck driver but getting paid to mostly just sit on your phone and browse Voat and push a button on the truck's touchscreen here and there wouldn't be bad, even for minimum wage.

Oh great another shitty "alternative". Now I have to use VPN to access voat but have to turn off VPN to access these links because they won't work with it on. Fucking retarded.

And all because of ageists that got voat banned in Russia over a fucking ASCII art of a girl. Yet there are people who would unironically support this censorshit.

You... ta' fuck are you babbling on, about? imgoat is an image host. Voat never allowed image uploads, we've always used third-party hosts to put images up. I'll personally use anything but imgur. Have you seen the shit-show that site has become? Wouldn't expect much from a bunch of fat-asses. Even their dog is fat.

Also, if your VPN doesn't work with a URL that isn't voat, holy fuck change providers. I've never heard of that being a problem... like, ever. And I've used a shit-ton of different VPNs in my day. This seems like more of a "you problem", comrade. Should probably take care of that.

I really don't care what "shit-show" a site became so long as it does it job without me having to tinker with it and without suddenly going offline and taking all of my images with. Like it happened many times already with the "alternatives". So thanks, but no thanks.
