New automated software aims to prevent truck accidents

Artificial intelligence is the wave of the future for many products people in Reno use every day. This includes incorporating artificial intelligence into motor vehicles to make them safer. One recent collaboration has developed automated software that aims to prevent truck accidents.

In a collaboration between Volvo Trucks North America, an automated vehicle software provider and a customer of Volvo, a project has been developed that uses automation to make it safer to operate a semi-truck. Through human intuition artificial intelligence, the new technology would perceive the actions of others on the road to make truckers more aware of their presence.

The software would analyze the eye contact, posture, head motion and physical orientation of others on the road to detect what they may be doing. Then, the software would signal to the trucker if the people around them are about to do something different. This would make it possible for truckers to react earlier to prevent accidents.

It remains to be seen if this new technology will one day be commonplace. However, as things currently stand, truckers are on their own when it comes to reacting to the actions of others on the road and they have a duty to drive safely themselves. Unsafe behaviors, such as aggressive driving, drowsy driving and drunk driving, may breach a trucker's duty of care to drive in a safe manner. If that duty of care is breached and it results in an accident that injures or kills another person, the victim of the crash may be able to hold the trucker and possibly even the truck company that hired the trucker responsible.
