Autonomous commercial vehicles, with no driver at the wheel, are beginning to show up on highways worldwide. Industry is looking for technological solutions that can deliver long-range detection in harsh weather and lighting conditions, to ensure safety and profitability.
The value proposition for autonomous platforms in the commercial vehicle space is becoming more and more favorable for fleets. There is currently a major shortage of commercial vehicles drivers. Autonomous vehicles can sharply reduce the number of drivers required for a fleet, historically the industry’s highest-cost line item.
Foresight’s technology enables the accurate and effective long-range detection of almost any obstacle including people, animals, and other machinery, at all times. In addition, strict regulations limit the number of hours drivers can log while on the road or while operating heavy-duty vehicles, effectively decreasing capacity. Autonomous vehicles could operate continuously, potentially reducing downtime and cutting costs for construction projects, while increasing capacity.
