Formula 1 2030, who will be driving?

Will it be the driver responding to a conversation with a technician watching the screens, or the technician instructing the driver’s brain directly in response to additional info seen through the drivers eyes… and who will earn the big money?

Have a read of the articles below and ponder the direction of travel…

BBC Will 5G be necessary for self-driving cars?

The government announced in 2020 that the sale of new petrol and diesel cars will be banned by 2030.

We would need 2x the current Global production of colbalt to power an electric fleet of vehicles just for the UK. We don’t have any colbalt mines in the UK so how is this vision going to be achieved? Especially with the Germans producing most of the cars…

The foundations for autonomous driving are fast and reliable communication networks, such as LTE and 5G. Therefore, Deutsche Telekom plans to install the 5G network on all key transport routes – such as freeways, main roads, and rail tracks – by 2025.

Vehicle-to-everything (V2X), also known as cellular-V2X (C-V2X) is a technology, with a clear evolution path to 5G…

Elon Musk’s Neuralink is a neurotechnology company that develops “ultra-high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces to connect humans and computers.”

“When the Internet of Things (IoT) connects with your body, the result is the Internet of Bodies (IoB). The Internet of Bodies (IoB) is an extension of the IoT and basically connects the human body to a network through devices that are ingested, implanted, or connected to the body in some way. Once connected, data can be exchanged, and the body and device can be remotely monitored and controlled.”

Klaus Schwab

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” Nikola Tesla

Your thoughts please…

Thank you.

  1. Hi Jon, interesting thoughts. A – I rarely use cruise control in the UK as the roads are way too busy and you are always adjusting/over-riding – in France it is a different matter on their quiet toll roads. B – self-driving cars is still a long way off – people are killed using todays technologies. I can support the concept of air-traffic-control piloting planes from the ground – that is possible now (as demonstrated with military drones. C – we need to advance battery technology greatly before WE ALL can drive electric cars. I have a battery in my garage to store the Solar power that I generate – but I still have to import electricity from the grid in the winter. D – as is pointed out we don’t mine enough cobalt and anyway the cobalt comes from poor countries where the workers are exploited. E – some of this new technology is good and should be used AT THE APPROPRIATE TIME. But early adopters are used to test unproven technologies – so watch out! F – as an IT consultant with 50+ years experience I have seen enormous change in hardware and software since my school days – but trusting ones life to this stuff whilst travelling at 70MPH on our congested roads is not something I’d do.

  2. As you say, mining is done using young children and if we buy electric, right now, we condone it… and if we can’t produce the batteries then why ban traditional vehicle production… unless this 5G roll out is more about IoB?
