The technician shortage threatens to become the next big problem for the transportation industry. Technology is offering a light at the end of the tunnel for the driver shortage: autonomous vehicles.

What are the successes and failures so far, and how long will it be before these technologies make a measurable impact on the demand for different types of vehicle technicians?
