Nobody knows for sure when the driverless car revolution will hit, but most are certain it will. Estimates of when the application of self-driving vehicles will occur range from a few years to several decades. However, many companies are scheduled to launch driverless vehicles in the 2019 to 2021 timeframe. The U.S. Secretary of Transportation stated at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto show that he expects driverless cars to be in use across the world within the next 10 years. This article describes what to do now to plan for the wide-sweeping impact of this and other technological changes in the workplace.
