Demonstration of Waymo's latest autonomous driving tech. Already huge strides from 2 years ago.
Our cars of today are using 90's cgi and Auto Cad..
Conductor-free trains is as far as it should go.
You mean engineer free?
Screw you, you don't know what I see.
Some airports already have this. Some sort of tram that's fully self-conducted and goes around different terminals.
The engineer drives the train...the conductor is typically in the body with the passengers on a passenger train....the trams I've been on don't have conductors.
So do you want self driving trains? Or do you want an engineer driving and no human in body of train?
As long as I am allowed to be shit faced while I am riding, I see these self driving cars as a godsend.
I guess trains are different where I'm from. Here, we have a light rail with one person at the head, driving the train. He judges the speed, when to open and close doors, etc. I don't know if that's what you call a conductor or engineer.
I don't really WANT that conductor/engineer eliminated but it's about as far as I can picture myself being comfortable riding.
Ok...if you drive the train you're a locomotive engineer. It's a common mistake, now I know what you're saying. It could certainly happen. I think there are automated fright trains running in Canada already
