Company aims to make trucks driveable from remote location

Georgia motorists who share the roadways with trucks may be interested to learn that a company is working to provide remote control technology that would allow commercial vehicles to operate without a driver present. The company, called Starsky Robotics, has designed a system that allows a person to control a truck from the comfort of a remote office.

The technology can be installed on trucks that are already in use. Camera and radar systems collect data that the operator can then use to drive the commercial vehicle. The driver would still be responsible for turning the steering wheel and stepping on the pedals, essentially driving the vehicle but without physically being in the cabin. The technology has already been successfully tested. A driver took a truck out for a 140-mile spin and used the technology for about 85 percent of the trip. However, the technology has not yet been tested in highway-like conditions.

According to the company's co-founder, utilizing remote control technology can provide commercial truck drivers with more time at home and provide a more appealing work environment. If the technology is successful, truck drivers will have the ability to drive the vehicle from any terminal to the final destination while still being able to go home and see family when their shift ends.

Although this type of technology can make highways safer in the long run, a distracted operator could still potentially cause a serious trucking accident. In other cases, there could be a software glitch that contributed to a collision. People who are in the future injured in an accident involving an autonomous truck will likely want to have the help of a lawyer when attempting to identify the party or parties that should be held financially responsible for their losses.
