Truck of the Future Project to Address Blind Zones in AI Pilot
The Together for Safer Roads coalition, with Anheuser-Busch InBev, Republic Services, and the New York City Department of Citywide Administrative Services, will work with a behavioral AI company to test ways to reduce blind zones around the truck as part of the new Truck of the Future project.
About one-quarter of all truck-related deaths in the U.S. are due to vision-related, low-speed maneuvers, according to TSR, and international research has found that driver visibility is related to over one-third of truck crashes with vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and bicyclists.
Last fall, TSR announced the Truck of the Future initiative to identify and test commercially viable technological solutions to eliminate collisions between commercial trucks and other vehicles caused by driver visibility. TSR President David Braunstein called the project a “call to arms regarding an underappreciated aspect of road safety.”
