With cars becoming more and more ‘smart’, it seems that sometime in the not-so-distant future we might never need to drive, but simply be passengers in a vehicle that can think and move without our help. It’s a terrifying thought for some people, but it could significantly reduce, or even entirely eliminate road accidents. By taking human error out of the picture, our roads could become a lot safer!
This is interesting for us because we’re the people who work on these machines, and as technology moves forwards, it seems to be less of a case of getting your hands dirty (or greasy, oily!) and more about reprogramming the internal computer. The skills required to work on them are changing. It’s exciting stuff!
