Autonomous driving vehicles are an inextricable part of our future society. Whether you talk about a truck, a bus or a car, destinations will be reached without a person holding the steering wheel. As a consequence, human drivers will need to find a new profession. Another option could be to shift their focus from the road to the passengers inside the vehicle. We are in need of singing bus drivers, lecturing tram conductors and we also might want to the exercise while commuting.
Keeping our harbors clean and safe is an important job. With global markets sending containerships in and out, a little help from the newest technologies is necessary. A perfect example of a smart port takes place in Rotterdam, in the Netherlands. Here an autonomous waste shark is fishing trash out of the water, before it flushes into high seas. While its colleague, a remote controlled water drone, keeps an eye on water levels.
