The reinvention of truck collision prevention

It doesn’t take too much to distract us from a task at hand. A loud sound, brightly colored billboard, or text notification can be all it takes to grab a driver’s attention. In fact, distracted driving is the number one cause of automotive collisions.  Of course, even professional truck drivers, who strive for accident-free operation,

Truck driver-facing cameras: The good, the bad and the ugly

Driver-facing cameras: spend any time online and you’ll know as well as I do that drivers are typically not… fond of them…Yes, I’ve talked to drivers who actually have good things to say about them. But I think it’s fair to say that they haven’t been painted in the same light as something like, say,

Telematics can solve freight cargo’s theft problem

There are few things that thieves appreciate more than high-value products bundled and neatly packed away in easily identifiable containers, making trucks a tempting target for cargo theft.

How self-driving truck systems see

Visibility is key to truck operation, that’s true for a human driver and it’s especially true for automated driving systems. While Level 2 self-driving technology (adaptive cruise control working with active lane keep assist) is available today, fully automated Level 4 machine driving requires even greater visibility. Visibility that might even be beyond what we

The past, present and future of truck technology

Only in retrospect does technology become a revolution. It’s development is often more of an evolution–the next logical step from the previous one taken. Consider the current trajectory of automated trucks, for example, that grew out of cruise control and lane departure warnings. Today, we have adaptive cruise control and active lane assist that leverage
