Autonomous trucks are not replacing truck drivers; they are altering the driving job. Just after the self-driving trucks were introduced, a debate started over whether the technology will put truckers out of work or help to solve a labor shortage as the trucking industry has struggled for lack of trailers, eighteen-wheelers, and buses drivers for the last 15 years. The Truck Driver Shortage Analysis 2017 published by the American Trucking Associations (ATA) highlighted the driver shortfall was ...
Both safety and security technologies for autonomous driving have evolved in the past years, nowadays active and predictive systems are being implemented on a large scale across the automotive industry. As no single technology is sufficient to meet all the stringent regulations for self-driving vehicles, a mix of advanced innovations are equipping cars and trucks to avoid accidents and provide security, comfort, and efficiency to drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and also other drivers.   ...
Since the past decade, technology is playing a pivotal role in the automotive industry; its future has shifted and juxtaposed elements that were not supposed to be linked together: autonomy & infotainment with engines & suspensions, or Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Augmented Reality (AR) with torque & horsepower. As 2017 worldwide car sales might reach the forecasted 79 million vehicles (only in the US were sold 17 million units), the fusion between the technology world and auto ...
The past year was an exciting year for automotive technologies. While 2016 had significant announcements and concepts, 2017 paved the road for future mobility by implementing most of those innovations. Car Makers, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), and suppliers are now building the next generation of vehicles, and some of them are not waiting around. Automotive engineers are focusing efforts in 2018 on embedding semi-autonomous features in the form of safety technologies and also safely ...
European e-Call System. The European commission will implement the automatic emergency call system e-Call by the beginning of 2018.   This emergency system provides information about position of the car, extend of damage and allows the insured person to talk to an emergency call centre. Chances for rescue and reduced severity of damage increase significantly. The Battery challenge.   The combination of GPS and GSM system and the need to have sensor data from various positions in ...
