7:24 am
where new jobs will come from lawrence lee reports. in this brave new world events official intelligence the first direct effect on all our lives will be in transport it's already begun and it will change humanity in many ways it's well enough known by now that driverless cars and lorries are being trials the future we're told may involve our children not having to learn how to drive please press the automation button to place the car to go to me to move to a scenario where is this one even sitting in a simulator you feel a lack of control as you don't grip the wheel or press the brakes dragging on for real involves a leap of faith. that is true. to the steering wheel you are now free to engage in other times the engineers here assure the technology is good enough for driverless travel on motorways if not in congested cities because there's too much going on. you know this is extremely busy and complex environment with lots of
7:25 am
potential destructors people running across roads. so i think that's probably too complex we've certainly trying to contemporary vehicle to make sure both on the motorway and in urban environments. they don't work at all in urban environments and even on motorways they require regular interventions by human drive less. the future it seems may be a combination of systems moving us from port to driverless port modern rail systems near airports are driverless and people use those quite happily the paths of the cars through space would be similar to if there were you know some physical guide to them so i think in some cases so long as the as the speeds are fairly low it's probably a safe proposition. true believers in driverless transport say we will be able to sleep or work in our vehicle but if that sounds good it will also mean the loss of millions of jobs and i wonder trades unions want to know how those jobs will be
