Whats interesting is that Elon started with as much money as you and I have now. Not sure whats stopping you from achieving more than him.


Crap, I'm starting to sound like a Tesla Fan Boy

Lutz is an interesting guy.. I would have liked to have seen him go into politics..

For the autonomous trucking future, who's gonna chain up the truck in winter, how it will it recognize a runaway lane that is all dirt, etc etc? As many failings as humans have, replacing a conscious able body in the truck that is able to improvise and adapt is going to be awfully tough. I could see it working in a temperate climate with perfect roads , but its a ways a way from being able to replace the body in the truck here.

I actually have a old high school assignment that details a system that is basically a "Hyperloop", actually better than the design Elon's; compete with technical diagrams of the modular tubes, flex joints, and pumping stations.

Should have patented that shit, lol

CEO of Toyota gives a nod to Tesla:

"I want to change the way they work on EVs," Toyoda said. "Maybe we will call them electric vehicles, but introduce connectivity. Think about Tesla. Tesla is producing cars. And Toyota is producing cars. But what Tesla is producing is something close to an iPhone."

Technology advances will eventually see autonomous vehicles become the norm and in the trucking industry it is probably especially attractive in that the only down time for the truck would be maintenence and fuel.

Even in my short time on this planet there's been amazing advances that have allowed for things we take for granted or soon will that were just sci-fi stuff in the 60's and 70's.

Plus there will always be an acceptable risk factor as well - we still fly around in jets and they occasionally fall out of the sky, the chance occurrence of a jet falling out of the sky is an acceptable risk for most human beings. Autonomous vehicles will be no different.
