Within the next five to ten years you will see tractor-trailers without a truck driver. Many companies are now testing self-driving trucks. There are some technical problems that still need to be solved. But it is expected that these trucks will be safer and less expensive.
Paying with your face
In China, face-detecting systems now authorize payments. This system provides access to various facilities and tracks down the criminals. Face technology is expanding in China.
