Perspective: Trucking’s Telematics Systems Are Only as Good as the Losses They Prevent

Perspective: Trucking’s Telematics Systems Are Only as Good as the Losses They Prevent Rising insurance premiums are a perennial stress for many motor carriers, many of which are now installing telematics systems with the latest safety technologies to mitigate cost increases. This is a positive trend for the trucking industry, and more carriers should fully embrace these technologies as they soon will become necessary to operate a safe, efficient and, ultimately, more profitable trucking fleet. Motor carriers that install telematics... [Lire la suite]

BMW built a self-riding motorcycle to help develop safety tech

BMW built a self-riding motorcycle to help develop safety tech The self-riding R1200GS will someday lead to active safety systems on motorcycles similar to what we see in modern four-wheeled transportation.   Riding a motorcycle is one of life's great pleasures, but unfortunately it does come with its share of risks. Many of those risks are being mitigated by new safety equipment such as lean-sensitive ABS and advanced traction control but life on two wheels is still miles away from what advanced driver assistance systems on...

How Artificial Intelligence Impacts Fleet Management

How Artificial Intelligence Impacts Fleet Management Artificial intelligence and autonomous vehicles An obvious application of artificial intelligence is in autonomous vehicles. Completely autonomous vehicles – with level 5 autonomy – will rely heavily on artificial intelligence to interpret the environment and react accordingly, though this technological advance is still some way off. Lower levels of autonomy for vehicles are already available in the automotive industry today: cruise control, autopilot modes, tracking of lane... [Lire la suite]

Uber is bringing its self-driving cars to Dallas

Uber is bringing its self-driving cars to Dallas Uber will begin testing its self-driving cars in Dallas, Texas in November, the company announced Tuesday. The vehicles will be operated by human drivers in downtown Dallas to start out, collecting mapping data and capturing driving scenarios which Uber’s engineers will then reproduce in simulation. This doesn’t mean Uber is planning to offer trips in its self-driving cars or even perform self-driving tests in Dallas. “The data we collect will inform our next steps — we may not look...
