The robots will take the most tedious, most dangerous jobs first, in most things. Trucking is no exception. Autonomous driving engineers are squarely focused on long-haul freight, the interstate runs with almost no complexity save for a slow curve or an E-ZPass lane. As such, those routes are some of the simpler challenges on the self-driving spectrum. According to a new study out of the University of Michigan, a new system could replace about 90% of human driving in U.S. long-haul trucking, the equivalent of roughly 500,000 jobs.
