The Mobility and Drones Industry
Transportation will be taken over by AI and robots. Taxi drivers have an 89% chance of being replaced by AI and robots, railroad conductors an 83% and space engineers 67%. These rising numbers all point to the fact that transportation is changing and humans will not be needed as much as they used to be. This seems daunting, but autonomous vehicles such as cars will not only improve traffic flow and provide enhanced mobility for the elderly and disabled, but will also reduce chances of accidents by 90%. In addition to autonomous vehicles, remote controlled vehicles and items, such as drones are becoming popular as well.
Drones get beautiful shots of landscapes and capture videos of special moments in life, but their utility expands far past that. In the next few decades, especially in a post COVID-19 world, remote work will remained ingrained into our lives, and drones will become in more use than ever. From their usage in replacing security guards to even performing health and rescue missions after climate events, the drone industry is thriving more ever. On one hand, security guard jobs have an 83% chance of being replaced by AI and Automation in the next few decades, drone pilot jobs are currently increasing to keep up with the booming industry and are currently paid around $120,000 a year.
Not only useful in the air, underwater droning has also arisen. 70% of lithium and metal resources are found underwater. China currently controls 92% of this industry, utilizing underwater drones to mine for these resources. In the hopes to one day even use drones to explore and mine in space, the drone industry will prove in the next decades to help change the world. Want to learn more? Read The Adaptive Economy.
