In an environment of growing safety concerns, decreasing driver resources, increasing infrastructure congestion, and rising costs, it has become more important than ever that the commercial vehicle industry find new ways to innovate. The top trucking OEM’s are working tirelessly to develop automation to allow for increased fleet efficiency, maximized driver productivity, better fuel economy, and above all safety.
While the autonomous truck has been defined as the way forward to achieve these outcomes, the technology is still far from flawless and not ready for full implementation. There are a variety of critical challenges ranging from software capabilities to hardware competencies and onto strategic planning inhibitors preventing this technology from complete adoption.
Join Melissa Birnie and Alan Korn, Director of Vehicle Dynamics and Control at Meritor WABCO on Nov 6th at 1:30 P.M. as they talk about The Autonomous Trucks 2015 Conference taking place from Nov 11th-15th @ the Crown Plaza in Detroit, where IQPC is bringing together the most motivated and forward-thinking OEMs, Suppliers, and Thought Leaders to work collectively and overcome these challenges and define the path to realize the infinite safety and efficiency benefits that come with integration of this disruptive technologies.
