• Electric, Driverless Truck Unveiled by Volvo (09/14/18)
    “Volvo Trucks has unveiled a driverless, electric tractor unit that can pull lorries full of goods while being controlled via the cloud”, Engineering and Technology (E&T) reported yesterday. The vehicle is planned for use involving short distances, is totally electric, has no cab and is compatible with typical load carriers or trailers. Volvo Trucks explains, “Since we use autonomous vehicles with no exhaust emissions and low noise, their operation can take place at any time of day or night. The solution uses existing road infrastructure and load carriers, making it easier to recoup costs and allowing for integration with existing operations.” (For more search “Volvo trucks” at https://eandt.theiet.org/)

  • Technology and Training – Keys to Driver Safety (08/28/18)
    “The right technology and proper training and coaching methods further increase safety” states Fleet Owner in an informative article this week. While increasing safety and mitigating risk is a much desired goal, a major challenge is the ability to identify and clearly see driver risks. This process can be substantially enhanced with technologies such as lane departure warning systems, stability controls, speed monitoring and navigation. In addition, onboard sensors and in-cab video can report critical events like hard braking, time violations, forward collision, and other negative driving behaviors. This data combined with other driver background information can be used to provide a “predictive model” that can be used to further reduce future risk.
