Musings on automation structures

2011-04-14 20:16:29.687925+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

Eight and a half million lane miles in the U.S.. Quarter of a billion highway vehicles in the U.S..

It would seem that you could then spend 30x per mile of road as on mile of car to automate the process, however: If you automate one vehicle independent of road upgrades, that vehicle is instantly usable on all of that road. If you automate one mile of road, none of those vehicles are yet usable on that road.

Three trillion highway vehicle miles annually.
