Autonomous vehicles, both cars and trucks, will cause dramatic changes in the transportation sector in the not-to-distant future. Imagine it being easy and relatively cheap to get a ride in a car with no driver. Mass transit will become more popular because it'll be easy to get a ride between transit stops and destinations. Trucks wouldn't need to stop to let their drivers rest. A challenge with autonomous vehicles is that fewer drivers will be needed. Jobs are expected to be lost. Ideally, society will create new jobs that are needed in the future, sustainable economy.
