Whitepaper: The next steps in horizontal transport automation

Management Summary

Automation of terminal tractors and road trucks is the next phase in automating transport. Initially in constrained environments like mines and ports but soon after also on the public road.

 

According the IRU in Europe there is a 20% shortage of drivers. Economic growth and very typical, online shopping will exacerbate this shortage. In America the ATA predicts similar shortages at short terms. Major truck OEM create innovative solutions, but also well-known tech companies are involved.

 

Two innovations which contribute to automating transport are “Aucos-Coup” (Automatic Coupling) and Aucos-Lock” (Automatic Locking). Both innovations save time and allow the driver to perform his tasks from the safety of the cab. Needless to say, that after remote control comes fully automated control.

 

When we forget all the capex and the opex savings and efficiency improvements and only think about preventing accidents, some 95% of all the accident have a human source. Reducing man-machine interaction will considerably improve the general wellbeing of everybody in the transport branch.
