This is our 4th episode talking about all of the new technology in trucking--especially when it comes to autonomous vehicles.
But what's the story behind what's powering the ability to use these trucks on highways without sacrificing safety?
A key aspect to getting more autonomous vehicles on the road to help with supply chain challenges is a technology called Lidar--which I've known about for a while because of the possibilities and discoveries made while using Lidar in archeology. So I was really pumped to see it being used in trucking.
Locomation’s COO Glynn Spangenberg was kind enough to join me live while at the Manifest conference and gave us a breakdown of how lidar systems are being used on their autonomous truck--which the company says can dramatically increase capacity, improve asset utilization, and lower costs for the supply chain overall.
