Collisions between large vehicle operators and other road users continue to be a leading public safety issue today. How are new technologies, truck designs, and safety solutions converging to address the problem today?
The closing keynote at the 2021 Fleet Safety Experience’s closing keynote, convening Sept. 23 at 3:30 p.m. EST, will deep dive into the answer.
In “How Will the Truck of the Future Enhance Road Safety?” keynote speaker David Braunstein, president of Together for Safer Roads (TSR) and Truck of the Future partners Jim Olson, Republic Services’ vice president of safety and Keith Kerman, deputy commissioner of New York City Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) and New York City’s first chief fleet officer will share real-world learnings from TSR’s groundbreaking program.
Launched in 2020, TSR’s Truck of the Future program is a first-of-its kind initiative created to improve fleet safety by identifying and testing innovative and cost-effective solutions that eliminate collisions between large vehicle operators and other road users.
The keynote seminar will educate attendees on the new frontier of innovations and systems to keep drivers safe behind the wheel — from improved cab designs and collision avoidance systems to interventions addressing driver visibility and better infrastructure planning.
TSR is a corporate social accelerator, leveraging private-sector technology, data, and expertise to prevent traffic crashes, injuries and fatalities around the world. As a global NGO, TSR works with government, businesses and community stakeholders on local projects, fleet safety management and technology initiatives.
“We’re delighted to get an advanced look into new technologies improving truck safety from key stakeholders,” said Chris Brown, Fleet Safety Experience conference chair. “With input from fleets, our audience will learn which real-world solutions will be viable to implement in their fleets soon.”
