TITLE: “Waste Fleets Are Smartening Up – Innovations in Smart Truck Technologies & Capabilities”
“What we refer to as a ‘smart truck’ is also known as a ‘connected’ or ‘intelligent’ vehicle in the automotive industry,” said Mr. Padilla. “For the waste and recycling industry, smart trucks include on-board computing and mobile communications technologies to connect waste collection fleets to managers and the back-office in real-time. These smart trucks are equipped with rugged in-cab flat screens that can integrate with cameras, scales, RFID readers, fuel monitors, and much more. Their benefits include enhanced safety, environmental and operational outcomes.”
Added Mr. Dodds: “There is a pent up demand in the waste and recycling industry for refuse vehicle innovations that will measurably improve operational outcomes. With cost pressures increasing, waste fleet managers are constantly tasked to get more productivity from their drivers and trucks to improve operational margins, meet environmental targets, reduce safety risks and keep customers happy. With rapidly evolving smart truck technologies, these goals are increasingly realistic.”
