changes that have occurred in the truck industry
The motor vehicle industry has been recognized as one of the fast-growing sectors in the market today. With the availability of technology, most of this company have adopted them and put them into adequate use around the area of work. These changes have sparked some mixed reaction in the trucking companies as some companies have taken well the changes that have been done. Because of these changes, truck drivers can now navigate around easier and safety measures have been assured. On the other end, some truck drivers are against this new system because it might render some of them jobless.
Even though a small number of these drivers resent the changes taking place, some of these changes have made life easier for others. One thing that has happened across the vehicle manufacturing industry is the existence of electric cars. The reason why these vehicles are in existence is because of the demand that has comes with it. According to the existing users of these electric cars, they are much efficient and require less maintenance. Due to the positive results generated by these vehicles, trucking companies have resulted in manufacturing electric trucks. There are minimal maintenance services required by electric cars and, this also helps to reduce the workload on the truck drivers side.
If you are a trucker, you are aware that most of these drivers push themselves beyond their limit so that the cargo can arrive at their destination on time. As a result, most of these drivers become exhausted which makes it hard to operate their cars. Such situations lead to road accidents that are caused by exhausted truck drivers. The government has set aside the number of hours every truck driver needs to travel before they can rest as a mechanism of reducing accidents in the road. Besides these regulations, there are new wearable technology devices that help monitor the exhaustion levels of a truck driver while on duty.
Whenever the tech determines that the driver is exhausted, it alerts them not to embark on the road until they are fully rested. Even if the space is minimal, a truck driver can park their truck with a lot of ease. Before backup cameras were designed, it took a lot of time for a truck driver to park their car because they could not see behind the car. Today, with the help of technology, these trucks are now being fitted with backup cameras that help the truck driver see what is behind them while parking or reversing the truck.
