2. Taxi Drivers
Although today it seems impossible for drivers to disappear, the truth is in the near future this profession could become obsolete.
Reasons are several, companies are developing autonomous vehicles, which are able to identify all the characteristics of their nearby environment using laser technology, radars, a global positioning system, and computerized vision, in order to be able to drive without any type of driver.
Several autonomous programs have been introduced by companies such as Google, Ford, Volvo, Renault, and BMW, but they have not yet managed to completely solve that lack of confidence in road safety and the insurance of these vehicles.
However, it seems a matter of time before they get ahead and the first autonomous cars hit the streets. We have already seen the first tests of autonomous cars in Tesla cars.
So it is not unreasonable to think that in the 2020s where we will see their real implementation.
