Title: The Future of Highways – Autonomous Truck Corridors
Date: On Demand
Presenters: Dan Rozycki, President of The Transtec Group, and Tyler Ley, Structural Engineering Professor at Oklahoma State Universty
A top contributor to how long a pavement lasts is the amount of load put on it. A typical sedan weighs about 3,000 pounds while semi trucks weigh up to 80,000 pounds. Highways would last a lot longer without truck loads, but trucking is incredibly important to the economy. Trucks deliver nearly 70% of all freight transported in the US. Could autonomous truck corridors be the solution?
