Five truck trend takeaways from May

June marks the official start of summer, but before we jump right into the deep end, here’s a recap of some of our most popular stories we think made a big splash! So, if you’re looking for some easy reading after the long weekend, take a look at this month’s most popular stories that you MAY have missed. (Are the puns getting old yet?)

5. Not your average co-pilot

Through the use of AI and collision prevention technology, Nauto is now offering an A.I system that gives realtime feedback and coaching to the drivers behind the wheel making for a safer ride now and better drivers down the road.

4. RNG and ROI

There is no one clear solution to global emissions nor is there a cookie cutter approach to finding the funding. This trailblazer mentality may turn some away, but not Hyliion who discusses the details of its Hypertruck ERX. With a range of 1,000 miles and electric performance, this hybrid might present a compelling case for those who want to decarbonize and move toward great sustainability.

3. ACT now and tomorrow

If a pictures worth a thousand words, consider this our longest story yet! Check out all the show floor buzz regarding the world of electrification and sustainability. From Daimler to International, there was news around every corner and we’ve got it all!

2. Something stinky this way comes

The summer heat is great for tanning, swimming and nights outside, but for the inside of a stuffy cab?

Not so much…

In this story, find out the ways you can counter the stench of leaks, pets, dusty vents and the miscellaneous things hidden in the truck. Your nose will thank you later!

1. Driving towards efficiency

While visiting Torc Robotics in Albuquerque, New Mexico, I got to experience a little more than just a normal ride. The self-driving semi escorted me through the mountains and back to the facility safely, but wait there’s more!

Ready to answer my abundance of questions was CEO Michael Fleming – check out what he had to say!
