The four pillars of future transport, are marked by the development of ITS, future technologies that will help to achieve transport:
1. Reduce emissions, caring for CO2 emissions
2. Increase Security in preventing road accidents
3. Reduce costs, improve performance
4. Always connected, communication and Internet of things in the vehicle
We are used in our day to day to see new and unstoppable technological developments in passenger cars. Since the new fuels, hybrids, electric to augmented reality applications in-vehicle entertainment.
In the industrial vehicle is exactly the same and more sense, since the carrier lives on the road, so the industry is evolving at a rapid new technological changes towards a more efficient transport steps, safe, environmentally friendly and always connected.
The government is very involved in the issue, to the point of having involved the Directorate General of Land Transportation (General Management Branch, Analysis and Innovation), the Directorate General of Highways (General Branch Network Operation and Management) and Prospective and Technology Division of Transportation. All with a common goal proliferation of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and, in general, of New Technologies (ICT) for the transport. You can read more on the following link.
In Spain we seek efficiency in transport and be competitive face Europe and we must work to have vehicles ready in these four pillars, where to get:
1. Reducing CO2 emissions through improved driving, thanks to increased transport and training systems that help the driver continuous improvement, as EfiBus in passenger transport.
2. To reduce accidents and increase safety for drivers.
3. Make the most competitive and profitable transport through fleet management systems and cost reduction.
4. Always connected. Can you imagine a driver of international automatic tolling system without having to stop at every highway toll? Or a flotista have to call every 30 minutes because unknown where his vehicle and load? Or that a driver does not have alarms or cabin safety?
In the market there are numerous solutions that help transport gradually adapt to new technologies and staying connected. Today no carrier should raise not have a GPS tracking system .
It is not a matter of control, it is an issue of location service to others, saving communication costs and optimizing routes and processes. Hard we try to fight the new technologies we must join them in pursuit of productivity and take advantage of what they can do for us.
