One of the hottest innovations in transportation is advanced driver-assistance systems — or ADAS — with new capabilities continually being launched in the marketplace. That’s good news for fleets, which stand to benefit from the added safety and efficiencies of ADAS technology as part of their fleet management toolkit. But the speed of change can make it challenging for fleet operators to keep up with the latest developments and how they apply to commercial vehicles. This article walks you through the swiftly changing landscape and gives a glimpse of what to expect as researchers explore the frontiers of fleet safety and driver-assistance technologies.
“ADAS can be a game changer for heavy-duty trucks.”
