UPS isnt going to keep human drivers over robotic ones because of "viruses", and its not like the trucks need to be connected to the public internet in the first place.
PS: The DOD drops bombs with fully robotic planes every single day
But they do need to be connected in some way, which means they can be hacked.
Which makes them vulnerable. Not just to hacking, but crashes all together.
I just don't think this technology is around the corner like some assume.
Apple can't even put out an iPhone update without it ****ing up everyone's phones. But UPS is going to update their driverless vehicles.
