The Auto Industry’s Job Apocalypse: Why You Might be Out of a Job by 2030

The Auto Industry’s Job Apocalypse: Why You Might be Out of a Job by 2030

According to one MIT study, robots will have taken over the jobs of around half of all Americans by 2030. What does this mean for the future of your job in the auto industry? And what can you do to protect yourself from being replaced by a robot? Here’s what you need to know about what’s going on in the auto industry, and how it could affect your career.

What is driverless cars?
Self-driving cars are vehicles that can sense their environment and navigate without human input. Also known as autonomous or driverless cars, they combine sensors and software to control, navigate, and drive the vehicle.

The two main types of self-driving cars are Level 1 (where the car has some autonomy) and Level 5 (which is fully autonomous). Google, Tesla, Uber, Toyota, Volvo, Audi are all investing in this new technology which could change the auto industry drastically.

In terms of demand for workers, automakers will have fewer employees because robots will perform many more tasks on assembly lines. However, the opposite may happen with the need for engineers who design these cars becoming higher than ever before.

Some estimate that 60% of engineers working on designing traditional gas powered vehicles could be out of a job by 2020 if driverless cars continue to grow at such a fast rate.

Why are driverless cars important?
There are many reasons why driverless cars are important. They have the potential to reduce accidents, save lives, reduce traffic congestion, and make transportation more efficient. In addition, driverless cars could provide mobility for those who cannot drive, such as the elderly or disabled.

Driverless cars would also be environmentally friendly because they would use less fuel than human-driven vehicles. Driverless cars will not require drivers to take breaks and thus can operate 24 hours per day, which is an improvement over traditional vehicles that often sit idle in parking lots during evenings and weekends when drivers are not available.

What will happen to taxi drivers?
Self-driving cars are already being tested on public roads, and many experts believe that they will be ubiquitous within a few years. That means that the millions of people who work as taxi drivers could soon be out of a job.

It’s unclear what will happen to these displaced workers in the short term, but there is hope for their long-term prospects.

Driverless vehicles have been touted as an opportunity for seniors to continue working after retirement and young people to gain employment skills before they enter the workforce.

Experts also predict that once driverless vehicles take over the streets, some car owners may elect not to own their own vehicle or may share one with others.

Regardless of how our society adapts to this new world order, it’s clear that jobs in this industry won’t exist in 20 years time if trends continue on their current course

What about truck drivers?
While we’re on the subject of jobs that might not exist in the future, let’s talk about truck drivers. It’s estimated that there are about 3.5 million truck drivers in the United States alone. And with the advent of self-driving trucks, those jobs could be in jeopardy.

So what should you do if you work in the auto industry? If you’re at risk for losing your job due to technology and automation, it may be time to start looking for other career opportunities and move onto something else.

How will insurance companies deal with driverless cars?
If you work in the auto industry, your job might be at risk in the next few years. That’s because driverless cars are becoming more and more common, and they’re likely to put a lot of people out of work.

For example, Uber just announced that it will begin testing self-driving cars on Pittsburgh streets within weeks. The company expects its autonomous fleet to take over one million trips per day in just a few years’ time. These trips would replace drivers who earn $1 billion annually for Uber.

Google has also been testing its own autonomous car technology with Lexus RX450h SUVs since 2009 and plans to have 100 prototypes on public roads this year.

Volvo says it will release its first semi-autonomous car next year, which could lead to fewer accidents and lower insurance premiums–but also eliminate jobs for insurance underwriters or claims adjusters.

Will car ownership change with driverless cars?
A lot of people think that driverless cars will mean the end of car ownership, and that we’ll all just hail autonomous Ubers when we need to get around. But I don’t think that’s necessarily the case.

Yes, driverless cars will make it easier for us to get from A to B without owning a car. But I think there will still be a market for personal vehicles, especially for those of us who live in rural areas or places with bad weather.

And even if you could hail an Uber whenever you wanted one, sometimes you want to take your own vehicle somewhere because it’s part of your identity. It would be like telling someone not to wear clothes anymore.

It would change the way we interact with each other if everyone had their own vehicle – our interactions would have less eye contact and less handshakes;

we’d have fewer long conversations about nothing in particular while waiting at a red light; and our parking lots would fill up faster because people wouldn’t share their rides.

And these are only minor examples – as any city planner can tell you, life is already changing for urban dwellers thanks to Uber!
