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

The evolving camera technology in today’s trucks

The conversation about cameras, particularly driver-facing cameras, is an often tumultuous one. You’ve likely heard the arguments before; on the one hand, that it will make drivers uncomfortable or likely to leave the fleet thanks to the feeling that Big Brother is watching them; on the other, that the cameras can save fleets money in

Just how smart are trucking artificial intelligence solutions?

The headline question is where my conversation with Nauto’s Chief Product Officer Yoav Banin ends up. As an artificial intelligence (A.I.) and computer vision provider, Nauto uses its algorithms to identify things like potential pedestrian collision, speeding, driver fatigue and drowsiness and intersection violations, to name a few. And it’s not alone. As more and

The 100% solar-powered Phillips Connect CargoVision camera monitors and can report the quality of the load (green = safe, red = unsafe) before the doors are open for unloading, Phillips says. The Phillips Connect CargoVision solution

Seeing the safety difference of camera monitor systems

The “no zones.” Long before I was editor of Fleet Equipment, a driver’s ed. video introduced me to the multitude of blind spots that surround a truck. Corny to be sure, but effective as I’ve remembered that song for (counts the years since getting a license)… far too long. Fitting then that another video would
