Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) – connect to the truck’s on-board computer and automatically record data on the truck’s movement, driver’s work and rest time, location, speed, fuel consumption and other parameters. This data is transmitted in real time to a dedicated platform where it can be viewed and analyzed by the carrier, customer or regulatory authorities.

ELDs provide a number of benefits for the safety and efficiency of road transportation:

  • help comply with legal regulations on driver work and rest time, preventing overwork and reducing the risk of accidents;
  • simplify the process of recording and documenting transportation, eliminating the need for drivers to keep paper logs and reducing the likelihood of errors and manipulation;
  • optimize routes and truck loads based on current road conditions, weather, traffic congestion and other factors;
  • help save fuel and reduce emissions by analyzing driver driving habits and making recommendations for improvement;
  • increase transparency and control over transportation by giving customers access to up-to-date information on the location and status of their cargo.

Unmanned trucks

Unmanned trucks are vehicles that drive themselves on the road without a human driver. For this purpose, they use various technologies such as cameras, radars, lidars, GPS, AI and V2X (vehicle-to-infrastructure communication). Unmanned trucks can be fully autonomous or operate under the remote control of an operator.

Unmanned trucks have several benefits for the safety and efficiency of road transportation:

  • eliminate human error as a major cause of road accidents, as they are able to react faster and more accurately to road conditions and avoid dangerous situations;
  • increase transportation productivity, can work around the clock without rest breaks and do not depend on the availability of qualified drivers;
  • reduce transportation costs, as they save fuel through better driving style, as well as reduce costs for drivers’ salaries, insurance, fines, etc…;
  • improve the environmental friendliness of transportation, they emit fewer emissions through better fuel management and can be equipped with alternative energy sources.
