Has anybody seen this show on The Science Channel or Discovery? Its pretty cool. Apparently in 3 or 4 decades computers will control all aspects of driving the vehicle. They made an example that computers already perform some function in controlling how the vehicle is driven. This would be the anti-lock break system. As soon as the car senses slipping in the tires the computer puts the breaks into anti-lock mode. So as technology improves all aspects of driving will be controlled by the computer elimanating all traffic accidents. So here is my UPS question. Assuming this will be possible in 30 years will UPS junk all the old vehicles in favor of the trucks that will drive themselves? UPS is notorious for holding on to old vehicles (hello 1983 non-power steering trucks still in the fleet), but the company would be accident free if they replace the fleet in the matter of a couple of years. I know it would cost the company billions of dollars to overhaul their fleet in the matter of a couple of years, but think of the savings in other areas. No 5 seeing habits. No Insurance. No safety training (driving). No accidents!($$$$$$$). You put 2 guys in the truck that would be totally focused on the most efficent way to deliver the packages, as they wouldn't have to think about anything else. I'll be retired(hopefully) before something like this becomes a reality, but its kind of cool to think about. My feeling is UPS will have to adopt the new fleet because if they don't they will be at a severe competitive disadvantage to any company that does. Any thought?
