Exploring Advanced Safety Technologies: Functionality, Effectiveness, and ROI

In 2015, large trucks were involved in 415,000 crashes in the U.S. that resulted in approximately 116,000 injuries and 4,067 fatalities. Although large truck crash rates are much lower than historical averages, the rate injury and fatal crashes have risen during the 2010 to 2015 timeframe. One way to reduce these crashes and their resulting injuries and fatalities is to accelerate the adoption of advanced safety technologies, such as: automatic emergency braking (AEB), lane departure warning (LDW), and video-based onboard monitoring systems (OBMS).

In this on-demand webinar, you will learn:
  • What are AEB, LDW, and video-based OBMS, and how do they work?
  • Do these systems improve safety?
  • Is there a societal benefit to implementing these systems?
  • Can I expect an ROI by installing these technologies?
