An automated truck eliminates the necessity of the physical presence of a driver. Automated trucks hold specifications comparable to a conventional truck but with state-of-the-art improvements.
These self-driving trucks use various hardware components such as LiDAR, infrared radars, advanced movement sensors, extremely precise sensors, cameras, and complicated algorithms that facilitate the truck to operate autonomously. The flocking or platooning of vehicles which is vehicle-to-vehicle interaction is an upcoming concept in the automated truck market projected to gain significance in the coming years.
The global automated truck market is exhibiting significant growth, which is attributable to the rising shortage of human drivers in recent years and surging volume of consignments being transported by a truck. According to the American Trucking Associations, the trucking industry had to deal with shortage of nearly 50,000 drivers in 2017. The number increased to 60,000 by 2018 as a result of the surging demand for transporting materials in large volumes by trucks.
Favorable Initiatives Undertaken to Improve Technology
From developed to emerging countries, growing accident cases are becoming key concerns. The introduction of self-driving trucks has significantly curbed the risk of accidents caused by human error.
