Driverless cargo truck route from Canada to Mexico

Welcome to Eternal Poverty
  • There are approximately 3.5 million professional truck drivers in the United States who will replaced by computers and robotics.
  • The economy is headed for a free fall as robotics, computers, the Internet and outsourcing permanently abolish countless millions of jobs.

(CTV News)  -  Trucks hauling cargo from Canada through the United States to Mexico and back navigate border crossings without the need for passports, visas or even a driver to steer them.

It's an idea that's not too far-fetched, says a group that met in North Dakota last week.

Marlo Anderson with the Central North American Trade Corridor Association says members are working to turn the idea into reality.

The plan is for an autonomous vehicle corridor along Route 83, which runs north-south through Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota and North Dakota. The road then continues into Manitoba.

A study into the feasibility of the project is being planned and Anderson says the group wants to travel to communities along the corridor to gain support.

"One of the challenges we have here in North Dakota is that we have a lot of energy production going on right now, but not enough pipelines to carry the oil from North Dakota to its destination point," he said.

That means other commodities, such as grain, need to fight for space on trains. A separate corridor could relieve that pressure, he said.

"We're hopeful that, working with the Canadian government, the Mexican government, the United States, we can create some kind of automated way ... (to) streamline that process of border crossings."

The technology, though experimental, already exists in driverless vehicles that use tools such as GPS to navigate roads, Anderson said.

Unmanned vehicles are more efficient, he suggested.

"They don't need to worry about a driver having too many hours in a day or in a week. Those types of things go by the wayside because the vehicle doesn't care."

A Future of Welfare
Technology and outsourcing are permanently abolishing good paying middle class jobs by the millions.  As an added "bonus" the political hacks want to import millions of legal and illegal aliens into the country to compete directly with American citizens for jobs.
