Combustion Engines & Efficiency
George Putic, VOA News
Combustion engines in cars may be on their way out, but experts agree it will take a few decades before electric-powered vehicles become dominant. Meanwhile, the existing gas and diesel engines can be made more efficient and less polluting. With a $9 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, a U.S.-based company is using an old technological concept to build a power-train that is 50% more fuel-efficient and just as powerful as conventional engines, as VOA’s George Putic reports.

Robot Truck Drivers Promise Safety & Savings, But Spark Job Worries
Jim Randle, VOA News
Duration: 2:30
The growing power of automation and computers means robots are likely to replace human truck drivers in the United States someday. Two experts say robot truckers are coming but will take years to fully take over. But others point to huge autonomous vehicles operating in mining and successful tests of self-driving cars, and predict it may happen much sooner. As VOA’s Jim Randle reports, 3.5 million humans drive trucks in the United States, and some of their jobs may be at risk.

Will Robot Truckers Take Jobs From Human Drivers?
Jim Randle, VOA News
Researchers say companies will deploy autonomous trucks as experts solve engineering, regulatory and safety concerns. The growing number of robot truckers could begin to take jobs from the 3.5 million humans who drive trucks in the US. This rising tide of automotive robotics follows a previous wave of automation that displaced millions from U.S. manufacturing jobs. Those lost jobs sparked an angry political movement against globalization and upended U.S. politics. VOA’s Jim Randle reports.
