monday transportation edition
I just found out yesterday that a portion of the Frito Lay delivery fleet consists of electric trucks. This is probably good for the company's bottom line as well as air quality in urban areas. Hooray.
I'm tempering my enthusiasm for fully autonomous self-driving cars. The software will have a lot of trouble with unusual situations and unmapped roads (like where I grew up). For many years, the technology will be shared with human controlled cars. The future is here, but it will be postponed until more funding can be found.
