Trucking industry adopting #IOT tech for efficiency, quality improvements
Getting a handle on the profound effect on how trucks are spec’ed, operated and maintained now and into the future
Vehicle data collection from embedded sensors, coupled with “Big Data” analysis can identify optimal maintenance strategies, replacing or updating components before they fail. That leads to greater reliability and less downtime from unexpected failures.
Collision avoidance systems are also providing data that may lead to safer operations in the future.
Cameras and sensors on the side and backs of vehicles may replace side mirrors (why? to reduce aerodynamic drag).
One thing is for certain – #IOT and #BigData are huge in industrial applications and will lead to better quality services and improved efficiency for providers and customers.
