Re: I have done that
Did you take the opportunity to have a fast food meal while uploading your work to the office? :) What I did once was to enter a shopping mall to send my work. Apparently, the WiFi from the cafe I was working was not working well and my work had not been sent. When I noticed, I was already out walking. I had to find an emergency place.

Re: Green Telecommute
Pretty much every company involved in driverless vehicles is testing their vehicles. There is not too much time left. By 2020, many of those are scheduled to be on the roads.

Re: Green Telecommute
I just read the other day that - and don't quote me on the details, but - Waymo is testing driverless taxis in Arizona right now.

Re: Green Telecommute
Yep. I’ve wondering about that as well. I also thought about the first one and when it was issued. I think the last driver’s license to be issued is going to be as important as the first one was. They will represent the beginning and the end of an era in the automotive industry. Also the start of a new one, of course.

Re: Green Telecommute
Yes, I think so, too. Beside the Uber/Lyft/Taxify ride preference there is also a car-share trend among younger generations mainly and some of the other generations who prefer to live according to the current trends. Electric autonomous shared vehicles is going to be an increasing trend that we are going to witness in just a couple of years’ time as smart mobility develops and unfolds. Uber, however, doesn’t work well everywhere in the world. Like in Turkey, for instance. A couple of months ago, I had a really bad experience trying to use the Uber service in Istambul. Drivers kept on cancelling because they are not really allowed there. They made me waste precious times waiting for long periods of time to finally cancel. So, what I mean is that governments will either have to let these forms of transport roll in their cities or they are going to fall behind from the rest of the world.

Re: Green Telecommute
Of course. I agree. And a Chinese proverb goes like this: Simplicity is an advanced course. :) In fact, autonomous vehicles are going to simplify pretty much everything for everyone. There are pilot trials going on in many places in the world and soon we are going to be taking public electric autonomous shuttle buses instead of the buses that pollute the streets today.

Re: Green Telecommute
> "People in the US like to own things and love their cars.".... That sentiment may be changing with the younger generation. Fewer younger professionals are buying cars and the trend appears to be going towards short term car rentals. Millennials prefer Uber/Lyft rides to the hassle of owning and maintaining a vehicle, apparently. And if autonomous Uber vehicles become reliable, those rides may be more efficient and productive for everyone. Makes me wonder when the last drivers license for a human will be issued....

Re: Green Telecommute
Simplicity in transportation... sure, but as Einstein said, "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." If transportation stays too simple, we'll never get autonomous vehicles!
