Fleet Telematics: A Technology Trip Continues

Fleet Telematics: A Technology Trip Continues Large fleet operators have deployed telematics technology long before the U.S. government’s mandate that Electronic Logging Devices be installed in long-haul trucks. In the last few years, however, the ELD mandate “had the most significant impact of any single thing” in driving greater interest from a broader array of companies in and use of telematics technology , according to Clem Driscoll, founder and principal of C.J. Driscoll & Associates. In the next few years, growth in use... [Lire la suite]

Are Self-Driving Trucks A Viable Option In Australia?

Are Self-Driving Trucks A Viable Option In Australia? For almost a decade now, robotic trucks have been hauling dirt and iron ore from mines and traveling through the Australian outback. However, due to their simple automation system, they are not allowed to traverse the highways and public roads because of a possible cause for accidents. But now it’s official. Self-driving vehicles are here. While road testing is still happening, driverless trucks are seen as a promising innovation for the Australia’s... [Lire la suite]

Fleets using artificial intelligence to accelerate safety, efficiency

Fleets using artificial intelligence to accelerate safety, efficiency “Artificial intelligence” (AI) may evoke fears of robots writing their own software code and not taking orders from humans. The real AI, at least in present form, is delivering results in the business world. Technology companies are using powerful computers and advanced statistical models to accelerate their product development. Most are not calling these efforts AI but rather machine learning. As a form of AI, machine learning is making it possible to quickly... [Lire la suite]
