At this year’s Fleet Safety Conference, which has moved venues to Las Vegas, representatives from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), and vehicle testing consultants AMCI Global will meet to discuss the current and upcoming safety-related vehicle technologies and how they will play a part in reducing fatal and non-fatal crashes.
Attendees will have an opportunity to discuss topics with the agency representatives and ask questions.
"This session will give attendees a front row seat to a discussion between the agencies that oversee the safety of the vehicles they drive every day," says Stephane Babcock, managing editor of HDT and co-chair of the Fleet Safety Conference. "It will also give them a chance to join in on the discussion."
From lane-departure warning systems to fully autonomous vehicle technologies, the panel will open the discussion to all attendees, fielding specific questions and creating an open dialogue about how technology is shaping the world of commercial vehicle safety. HDT Equipment Editor Jim Park will be on hand to moderate the session, bringing his decades of experience to the panel. He will be joined by William Bensmiller from FMCSA, Jennifer Morrison of the NTSB, and Guy Mangiamele of AMCI Global.
