Artificial intelligence is the wave of the future. Many many products people in Las Vegas use every day incorporate a form of artificial intelligence–from “Hey Siri” to Amazon’s Alexa, to intelligent vacuums, and self-driving cars… the demand and success of AI continually rolls out, and it was only a matter of time before this cutting-edge technology became implemented on a larger scale. Certain companies have begun incorporating artificial intelligence into motor vehicles to make them safer. One recent collaboration has developed automated software that aims to prevent truck accidents.
Volvo Trucks North America, an automated vehicle software provider and a client of Volvo, a project is in development that will use automation to enhance the safety of semi-trucks. By use of human intuition artificial intelligence, the innovative technology would perceive the actions of others on the road to make truckers more aware of their presence.
The software is in development to analyze the eye contact, posture, head motion and physical orientation of others on the road to detect what they may be doing. The software use take the data to signal to the trucker if the people around them are distracted and/or aware of their surroundings. The objective is to keep truckers on high-alert to better position themselves on the roadways to avoid potential accidents from happening.
As the technology is still in its beginning phase of development, it remains unknown whether or not this new technology will become commonplace. However, as things currently stand, truck drivers are on their own when it comes anticipating the actions of others on the road.
Common, unsafe behaviors, such as distracted driving, driving while exhausted, and drunk driving challenge a trucker’s duty of care to operate their vehicles in a safe manner. If that duty of care is breached, and it results in an accident that injures or even kills another person, the victim of the crash will likely hold the trucker, and possibly even the trucking company that hired the trucker, responsible.
