A glimpse into the future of autonomous vehicles

Cesar Hidalgo (Twitter) has shared this mesmerizing video by People's Daily, China. It shows hundreds of autonomous robots sorting parcels in a warehouse of a Chinese delivery company.

It makes you think about many things related the technology density of the Chinese economy and the coming changes in the labor market of China and beyond. The obvious thought that occurred to me, though, is how these warehouses can be thought as a super simplified beta-version of integrated systems of autonomous vehicles we might see in cities in 100 years form now... maybe 50.
