Trucking 2020

A new report from IBM looks into the future of the trucking industry. The report predicts that new technologies for systems monitoring will become standard.

From Fast Company:

"IBM predicts that telematics could do everything from automatically slowing a truck down when it approaches a blind curve to diagnosing vehicle issues remotely for preventative maintenance. All of these technologies will decrease the number of truck accidents on the road. In turn, that will cut down on highway traffic and fuel burned by idling vehicles. Telematics could even decrease potential litigation costs by keep track of a truck's every move."
