Too close? Don’t think so! With Volvo’s Adaptive Cruise Control, our trucks can keep a safe distance from other vehicles on the road. This is just one of the ways we practice Active Safety at Volvo Trucks. Check out the video for more!
It's usually linked to adaptive cruise control, the new bread of hgv drivers are taught to drive with their thumb's rather than feet.In my experience of assessing hgv drivers it's not a system they compensate for, in fact they commonly switch it off.
I have both on my truck. The thing I find with Adaptive Cruise Control is that it brakes harder than I do and much later as well, for example approaching a roundabout when vehicles in front are slowing down.
That's intense. I love it. You have quite a few things attached to your windshield, eh?
A high-end car today may have nearly a 100 million lines of code — ,according to this article,, 14 times more than a Boeing 787 Dreamliner (7 million) — spread across 100 or more separate microcontrollers. Even a mainstream auto has probably 50 microcontrollers and 10 million lines of code. At CES 2016, ,Ford announced, they have 150 million lines of code in their latest version of the F150. Those numbers, particularly for automobiles and trucks, include not just the auto-pilot features, but all the systems in the car such as engine control and entertainment centers. I’m not sure what’s all included in the 787 numbers. But still. Airplanes have had ,autopilots ,for many years. They are designed to keep the plane level, using an ,inertial guidance system,, and on course, based on the desired heading and either signals from the ground (in the past using ,LORAN-C,, now using satellite navigation such as ,GPS,). But they don’t have to worry about other vehicles or other obstacles directly ahead, behind, or beside them. Automobile ,autonomous driving systems, are actually more complex. They range from ,adaptive cruise control,, to ,lane-keeping assist,, all the way up to completely self-driving vehicles, such as ,Waymo self-driving taxis,, currently being tested in my area (near Phoenix, AZ). Autonomous vehicles use a combination of ,lidar,, radar, and cameras to make their way among traffic, and GPS for navigation. A year ago we bought a Subaru Impreza which has three separate LCD screens for the driver. It also has a system called ,Eyesight, which uses two cameras located on either side of the front mirror, and can pick up lane markings so that if I should start to wander outside of a lane, it will actually steer itself back into the middle. Plus it has front and rear collision avoidance systems, and adaptive cruise control (follows the car in front of me). So there is a lot of image processing going on here.
Two excellent answers, so far. But they missed the physics of the issue. Slipstream - Wikipedia When one truck passes another, often painfully slowly because it has to beat its way through the bow wave of air coming from the front of the truck being passed, it immediately hits a new problem. The curse of the slipstream. The turbulent air behind the truck is acting with a suction effect on the truck behind. This has two inescapable results The truck in front is now towing the truck behind to all intents and purposes The truck behind, unencumbered by similar drag, will have either to overtake or else to fall back The problem is made worse by speed limiters. It might never be possible to program a simple speed limiter to obey an exact speed. I've been out of professional driving for 14 years, but I hope that new wagons are now supplied with adaptive cruise control (,Autonomous cruise control system - Wikipedia,)
I I don't have many more than my car, but my car has a full range of gauges. Stuff my Volvo has that my Kia doesn't, it has because it needs them. With the exception of the boost gauge. A car or truck with an ECM doesn't need to display the boost. Stuff in one but not the other: Parking brake, and trailer supply: it's obvious that these need controls, and I prefer them on the dash, I wish my car had the parking brake there. Trailer brake valve. Only used for testing pretrip and for heat drying trailer brakes in cold wet weather before dropping the trailers. But it's a good thing to have. Engine brake control. On the Volvo it's all in one switch. Diesels need a retarder. Interaxle differential lock. Locks the two axles together for snow, ice and mud. 5th wheel slide lock; needed to adjust weight balance between drives and steer axles (unlike cars, we have to make sure our weights are legal every load). Drive axle air dump: this lets us take stress off the 5th wheel as we drop the trailer. Sleeper light switch. Actually, I have a dome light switch in the Kia, so that's a tie. Sleeper HVAC kill switch. Not sure why it's there, I've never turned it off from the front. Primary and secondary air pressure gauges. Required to give us notice that things are about to go very wrong with the brakes (seldom happens, but if so, we need the warning to get stopped safely). Headlight and marker light interrupt switches, to signal either “safe to pull back over” or “thank you”. I wish my car had these. I wish morons would reach for the off switch rather than the high beams to let us know we're safely past them. Engine fan switch. At low speeds, the AC works better. It'd be nice if cars had these, but they don't. Mirror heat switch: why the fuck cars still do not have heated mirrors standard is beyond me. But my Volvo has it, my car does not. Power mirror controls. I have a base model Soul, but many cars have this. However, you should see all the cool buttons on my Volvo steering wheel: 6 buttons that control the stereo: not needed for the truck, but kinda cool. Two buttons that let me pull up diagnostics when parked, and switch the display between various gauges when I'm rolling; they also let me check all external lights for pretrip: I get three seconds of left turn, three seconds of right turn, and then three seconds of brake lights, and the headlights give three seconds of low beams, three seconds of high beam, and then three seconds of low beam with fog lights. Several buttons for Bluetooth phone control. For the cruise control, I've got a rocker switch with multiple functions and switches that let me assign that switch to select among: Set speed: self explanatory for those who have seen cruise control. Engine brake cruise control speed: the speed at which the engine brake comes on to keep me from overspeeding the cruise control Downhill speed: if I'm going down a long grade, the top speed it'll hold me to Following distance: it has adaptive cruise, and I can set how far back it keeps me. All of that is on my steering wheel. Speed Racer, eat your heart out. My truck is much nicer than my car. Of course my truck costs more than my house.
My current truck, a 2019 Volvo VNL 760 has adaptive cruise lane departure as well as blind spot and forward collision warning that being said these systems are not super reliable and will actually brake the truck for no reason when the sensors see ghosts in the road. ABS has been mandatory for quite a while on both tractor and trailer and you can be placed out of service if it in non functional
The ‘Truck Driver Shortage’ is a myth perpetuated by the ATA (American Trucking Association), the big fleets in the US. There is no shortage of truck drivers. Over 350,000 CDL’s (Commercial Driver’s License) were issued in the US last year alone. What there is is a shortage of pay and benefits for what is required of a professional driver in a large portion of the industry. The big fleets that you see running down the freeways have annual turnover rates around 100% If there were a ‘truck driver shortage’, where do they manage to find two drivers every year for each of their trucks? Trucking is a diverse industry that includes everything from local delivery to OTR coast to coast cross country transportation and everything in between. Some drivers in some niches of the industry have good jobs with reasonable incomes, but Over The Road drivers tend to earn slightly less than the national median income (according to the U.S. Department of Labor) and this is for a seventy or eighty hour work week. Take this test to see if you want to be an Over The Road truck driver: Do you want to drive from 8 AM to 5 PM and have the rest of the night off? Trucking is not for you. Do you want weekends and holidays off? Trucking is not for you. Do you need to be home for holidays,birthdays, anniversaries and your kid’s high school graduation? Trucking is not for you. Do you mind being stopped on the highway for a random inspection of your equipment, paperwork, driving credentials and any violation of the regulations concerning operating a commercial vehicle? Trucking is not for you. Do you object to random drug testing? Trucking is not for you. As far as ‘driverless trucks’ go, it isn’t going to happen. ‘Driver assist’ features will continue to grow as they are now with adaptive cruise control, predictive cruise control, automatic braking and ‘lane keeping’ assist. And even when the technology reaches a point where a truck can go down the road all by itself with no input from the driver, there will always have to be a qualified driver in the cab to take over in case something goes wrong. The job of ‘driving a truck’ will change, but not be eliminated.
Some do, others don’t. I had my first cruise control experience in an US rental car during a vacation in Florida. I was so pleased by this that I bought an aftermarket kit and had it installed in my 1981 Mercedes-Benz 200. Back then a cruise control in a car was something rather unusual in Germany. Compared to today, standard configuration of cars was very basic. Power windows, power locks, power steering was not standard, at least not with smaller cars. And cruise control usually was an extra option, either to be ordered alone or in a package together with the automatic transmission. Today cruise controls has become more common, because cars have everything onboard you need for it: a speed signal (delivered by the ABS), an electronic motor management (you won’t pass the emission tests without it) and a drive by wire throttle. For several years it was rather simple to upgrade any VW to a cruise control: Simply exchange the lever for the indicator lights at the steering wheel column against one with the CC switch and unlock the software. Today even the tiny Smart Fortwo comes with a CC. Many people I know do not like it, nevertheless. They fear of losing control or falling asleep, besides that they claim that traffic in Germany is so dense that you hardly can drive a longer distance with a constant speed. Adaptive Cruise Control can solve this problem, but today it is common only in new, big and expensive cars. I assume that right now less than 10% of all cars in Germany have ACC. So the answer is: Some Germans use cruise control on the Autobahn, others don’t. By the way: About all heavy trucks are equipped with CC, and about all truck drivers use them.
Sorry for shouting but… NEVER EVER EVER EVER DRAFT A TRACTOR TRAILER. We have air brakes designed to stop a fully laden vehicle. If we're empty we can stop faster than you can react. To get close enough to a trailer to get any drafting effect you'd have to be inches off the bumper. One tap of the brakes and you’d be decapitated.
The short answer is because car manufacturers sell cars to people that buy new cars. They don’t design to appeal to used car buyers. In the 60s, a car that made it to 100,000 miles without extensive repair and expensive replacements was a rarity. Now cars commonly make it to 180,000 miles with little more than tires, batteries, brakes, and oil changes. In days gone by, people that wanted cheap reliable transportation would buy a no frills car, because they could only plan on 60,000 miles of reliable service. Today that buyer gets a Camry with 120,000 miles on it, and expects to get another 60,000. Toyota doesn’t design the car to appeal to him though. They design to sell to the first guy. The first guy wants a more luxurious experience. If he just wanted cheap reliable transportation he would buy a used car too. Today’s new car buyer wants more than just affordability and reliability. Lots of people claim they want a compact truck with manual windows, cruise control, a radio with no bluetooth nonsense and no other frills. The thing is, those buyers never show up on new car lots. They’re looking at 5 year old trucks. The guys that actually show up at dealerships ready to sign on the dotted line for a new vehicle want 17 airbags, back up cameras, 12 speaker radio systems with bluetooth connectivity, heated seats, and adaptive cruise control.
I've yet to drive a semi that didn't have it; from the most stripped down base model Mack made for pulling a dump trailer locally (the right seat didn't even have suspension) to my current 2020 model year Kenworth T680, all have had some sort of cruise. Until 2011, all of them had been plain old “set a speed and I'll do the best I can to maintain that speed" regular old cruise. In 2011 I was introduced to Bendix Wingman, an adaptive cruise and collision avoidance system. It had radar and would track the vehicle in front of you, matching its speed and even braking if needed. Then in 2017, I got a truck with predictive cruise. Not only did it have the radar system, it also has a GPS and a topographic map built in. It'll let off the gas as I get close to the top of a hill, allowing gravity to do the work of getting me back up to normal cruising speed. It's incredibly slick, but I find it oddly annoying to drive. Saves a bunch of fuel though.
30 years is a really long time. 30 years ago, 1988, most people didn't have computers at home and many didn't have them at work. Fax machines and pagers were a big deal. My dad was writing his PhD thesis on a computer with 5.25″ floppies, a green monochrome screen and a dot matrix printer. Nobody had heard of the internet. Things like smartphones and adaptive cruise control were science fiction. We should expect that any technology we can feasibly imagine, that doesn't depend on new science, will be created by 2048. With that in mind, here are some jobs that we should expect to disappear almost completely from the developed world: Taxi, truck, bus and train driver Postal carrier Garbage collector Fast food worker Store clerk, cashier Factory worker of all kinds Construction worker House cleaner/janitor Cook (but not fancy chef) These jobs will still exist but with greatly reduced demand: Security guard Sex worker Pilot Soldier Teacher Some of these jobs may be protected by legislation. Jobs that survive fit into five categories: Building and managing machines: engineers of all kinds, bankers Creative work: artists, musicians, designers, chefs. Robots will do this too, but they'll augment rather than replace humans. Human connection: therapist, bartender, actor, clergy, police Skilled trades for existing construction: electrical, plumbing, etc. The machines to do this properly are very complex but the work they would do isn't paid well enough to justify the expense - unless someone can figure out a trick to simplify the machinery. These will be the next to go but I don't think it'll happen in 30 years. Legally protected racket: lawyer, bureaucrat
