Autonomous cars will take workplaces from the taxi drivers

Many tech-oriented companies in the world are competing to be the first one to create a self-driving car, that will probably make a revolution on the job market. With the technology, developing so fast it’s just a matter of time when we’ll be taken home by robotic cars.

We all got used to technology nowadays, so it won’t be a surprise when one day human drivers will be replaced by robots.

Many tech-oriented companies in the world are competing to be the first one to create a self-driving car, that will probably make a revolution on the job market. With the technology, developing so fast it’s just a matter of time when we’ll be taken home by robotic cars.

But, on the other side, the implementation of robots will take away jobs from thousands of taхi drivers. The popular taxi company, Uber is already extruding private taxi drivers from the public transportation market with its convenient service. Recently rumors spread around the internet that Uber is planning to replace human drivers with robots. Experts note that the robotic revolution in public transportation service may change the whole economy.

According to the official papers, there are around 178,000 drivers, working as taxi drivers in the US, but when robots will prove their efficiency as taxi drivers, they may also replace thousands of people on other driving-related professions, such as postal service mail carriers, bus drivers or even heavy machinery drivers.

Despite the major minus, described above, autonomous cars should solve problems that a human isn’t always capable of solving, like careless driving and improved safety. And, don’t forget that when robots will replace humans, they will have more time for their family or close friends.
