How does AV technology affect the trucking industry?
Research is still ongoing on how trucking vehicles can incorporate the last two stages of AV technology to make transportation of goods safer and more efficient. It may not mean that the trucking vehicles will operate themselves but soon enough, they should be able to incorporate automation to handle critical tasks like braking in emergency situations.
In fact, at Amplify Logistics, we’ve partnered with trucking companies that are using automated technologies like lane guidance to enhance safety. With this technology, truck drivers can stick to their lanes and only change when it’s safe. This has really helped to reduce the potential of truck accidents and ensure our drivers remain safe on the roads.
By using AV technology, truck drivers have certainly become more efficient. Driving these heavy automobiles can be tiring but automation makes it a lot easier. Automation has enabled truck drivers to drive for a longer amount of time and consequently take fewer breaks which has helped to reduce average travel times. With drivers spending less time on the road, they can have more time to connect with their friends and families. This also opens up a window of opportunity for drivers who would like to train in other departments within the company.
