Q. Which form of transport is easiest to automate, rate in order?

Aircraft, trains, ships.

Now when you have thought about that ask why are there still train drivers.

And don't forget that most accidents that have happened would also have happened if there were no pilots. Also the case with Lion Air, that plane would have crashed without pilots as well, only sooner. And the day before, the pilots had even saved that plane from the failing automation.

How many times earlier have pilots saved their plane from failing automation? Problem is that those moments never reach the news.
