Driverless trucks could halve costs and improve safety

Related news Trucking companies are preparing to invest in driverless technology which could cut costs by nearly half and improve safety. The first steps are being made in Australia due to its status as the world’s most truck-dependent nation. The country’s road transport companies are in the process of modernising their fleets to ensure they are ready for driverless technology which could become a reality by the end of the decade. Mining giants such as Rio Tinto are already using remote controlled lorries to shift iron ore around massive mining pits. In addition, the trucking company Toll Group has already kitted out many of its 3,000 vehicles with semi-autonomous gadgetry like lane-change sensors and cruise control. “I don’t see this as disruptive necessarily, as much as a natural evolution,” said Toll s Sarah Jones. Toll and other trucking firms are flying to the Netherlands in April to watch a driverless truck trial. The country wants autonomous road trains sending cargo from Rotterdam, Europe’s biggest port, throughout the continent by 2019. Early efforts in the field are focused on platooning , where trucks cut wind resistance and lower fuel costs by travelling in close procession. A manned front vehicle controls gas and brakes for the others using radio signals. Other benefits can also be attained from going fully driverless. Removing driver compartments will allow for more cargo space and the elimination of air conditioning units. There will also be no need for rest stops, meaning trucks can continue driving until they reach their destinations. The cuts in wage and fuel bills could be very significant. The US road freight business alone was worth $700bn ( 489bn) in 2014, according to the American Trucking Associations. “It’s a huge productivity benefit, and that’s before you start looking at the impacts on road safety,” said Gerard Waldron, managing director of the Australian Road Research Board, which is conducting autonomous vehicle testing and estimates cost savings of 40 per cent. “You would also come to a conclusion that since 90 per cent of crashes and injuries are the result of human error, you could put a fair dent in that sort of outcome as well.” Although there are fears that thousands of drivers could lose their jobs with the advent of driverless technology, the industry has downplayed the concerns, arguing that many countries struggle to fill trucking jobs.

Why Brexit was the only answer for me

Brexit: For the very best of reasons, and in all innocence, history will say that Ireland was duped into relying on, and being subservient to, the EU . (Photo: Shutterstock) Brexit: For the very best of reasons, and in all innocence, history will say that Ireland was duped into relying on, and being subservient to, the EU . (Photo: Shutterstock) AS a child of the 40s in South East England it was difficult to avoid having an outward looking view on life. The combined echoes of Empire and the, then, recent War would be reflected in many childhood games, and the books we read (with limited radio and no TV) were filled with foreign conquests and adventure. With rationing still a fact of daily life, anything that smacked even vaguely of abroad was seen as exotic so, when faced with the option to join the Common Market , as it was then known, I was a whole-hearted enthusiast, and have remained so in spirit to this day. With a long career in the coach industry, and based within a short distance of the Channel ports, I made well over 150 trips to mainland Europe, always of course by road (not air), and the natural courtesies and bonhomie one encounters everywhere can do nothing but cement an idea of kinship with fellow Europeans, despite language difficulties. So why did I, very reluctantly, vote to Leave on June 23rd? One of the few benefits of advancing years is the experience gained along the way. In the late 70s, training became the buzzword for UK industry. Most large industries created an xxITB (Industry Training Board) and larger companies would recruit Training Managers to produce courses for the various activities/skills involved. In real terms this didn t take them long but, to justify their continued employment, they d look round for, often hollow, excuses to create even more training opportunities. This resulted in resistance from those who had their departments disrupted to make staff available to attend them. Thus, what started life as an admirable concept fell into disrepute and faded into comparative obscurity. Fast forward a decade or two and the mere mention of Health & Safety is likely to raise eyebrows in derisory fashion another excellent principle that has largely outgrown itself for practical application and we now have a whole European continent whose manic bureaucracy, left unchecked, will also descend headlong into ridicule. One of the key elements of the EU, as the mandarins see it, is Federalism which, if ratified, would result in something akin to a USE equivalent of the USA or, more likely, a European Socialist version of the former USSR. Long term, something I probably don t have much of, this will hit problems. Historically, without the speed of modern communications, it took only 150 years for the socialist politics of the Soviet Union to rise, be toppled and dismantled. The EU s, essentially socialist, foundations are only 40 years old, yet already a swing to the political right is threatening its very existence plus the enormous infrastructure it has already created. But what of financial matters. For the very best of reasons, and in all innocence, history will say that Ireland was duped into relying on, and being subservient to, the EU. The Nett Contributor nations will nevertheless be independent of that, hence the UK referendum. When we left the UK in 2007 we were paying a household charge of some 1,500 per year plus 300 each for water and sewage, a total of 2,100, or around ‘ 2,600 before the recent currency fluctuations. I don t have access to current figures, but this level of contribution made it possible for a standard of living and social provision that s now attracting hordes of migrants from across the world a totally mismanaged situation that has been accentuated by the EU. The membership fee paid by the UK amounts to some 20bn every year, of which something like 7bn is reallocated to UK charities and projects, but over which the UK has absolutely NO control. It is therefore quite possible for Town X to be allocated funds for revamping a swimming pool by the EU, when the local hospital is desperately in need of a vital piece of equipment. The main thrust of the Brexit campaign was to Take Back Control and I sympathised with that. To build a huge admin system that will shuttle a complete parliament from Brussels to Strasbourg once a month, and which could be made obsolete in months with a few national elections, is total folly and I m hoping that, by casting my vote to Leave , it will help create a groundswell of opinion towards a return to a Common Market where we all trade freely but rule ourselves. The UK, with Denmark, has always been seen in Europe as the Wild Child that held out against joining the euro, and other matters with which it disagreed. So, the moment the Blair government promised (but never delivered) a referendum, the die was cast. RemaIN , and the UK would be surrendering itself to total domination by the EU, much to the delight of the Juncker mafia. Brexit was the only answer for many, as the status quo was no longer going to be an option. Ireland doesn t want to charge separately for water, but has to because the EU says it must. Ireland might not want to charge all its bus and truck drivers ‘ 55 per year for a pointless CPC certificate, but has to because the EU decrees it. And, if the EU pronounces that abortion should be available on demand for those who wish it, Ireland will have to comply. It took Ireland 700+ years to regain its sovereignty, but … ?
