Google is known for being crooked and self-serving, and you should check out Google wants to trick you into Advertising Adsense for them for FREE and Evidence of Google Stealing Ad Revenue on Youtube. But the scope of the damage they’re plotting is a hundred times worse than manipulating search, invading our privacy or stealing ad revenue.
And nobody is talking about it!
It seems like the idea of Google self driving cars is the focus of every tech writer’s report and they talk about all of the wonderful things that will come out having vehicles that drive themselves.
Tell me about how wonderful it’s going to be for the 3.5 million professional truck drivers? How about the taxi cab drivers, the bus drivers and the delivery drivers?
Just like that millions of middle class people will have no jobs and absolutely nothing to replace those jobs. Technology and moving jobs overseas has decimated the employment market in America and Google is planning to drop a Nuclear Bomb on the people who drive professionally.
Historically when technology took jobs there were replacements for those jobs. The blacksmith could work on automobiles or the guy who lit streetlamps could become an electrician. But now jobs go away and there is nothing to replace them, As a country, what do we expect people to do when their jobs become obsolete and there is nothing else to replace that work?
Today a truck driver can earn $70,000 a year. After driverless vehicles maybe they could take a pay cut and get another job? Perhaps they could all become bank tellers? Well No… those have been replaced by ATMs. Well maybe they could work as cashiers? Oh, those are being replaced by self scanning registers. Well maybe they could be a programmer? Shit, those jobs have moved to India. Perhaps they could move to China and get a manufacturing job, because they’re sure not going to get one in the USA! LOL! You get the point.
I’m the first one to say I love technology. And as long as the car drives better than I do (which wouldn’t be hard to do), I’d love to have one. But what about the consequences to our country?
How does the system steer the cars?
1. Hack-into the electronics and s/w of the electric-power-assisted-steering (EPAS) system to drive the EPAS motor? or
2. Tap-into and use the EPAS motor to steer the vehicle? or
3. use a motor separate from and outside of the EPAS control system to input torque into the steering system?
