The Future of Truck Safety & Environmental Technology & Impact on Regulations

  1. 1. The Future of Truck Safety & Environmental Technology & Impact on Regulations CILTNA Outlook Conference Innovation & Technology Panel May, 2016 Stephen Laskowski, Sr. VP Canadian Trucking Alliance
  2. 2. Direction of Truck Safety • Do more with fewer resources - both carrier and enforcement - make safety efficient; • Use of technology will supplement and enhance existing enforcement regimes and supplement driver skill sets; • Focus is shifting from mechanical fitness to driver action/behaviour
  3. 3. Government Agenda? • Continual longterm focus on reducing severity of collisions with trucks. • Focus on anti-collision technologies, driver fatigue and tighter regulation of trucking companies considered high risk for future collisions. • Realization that approx 90% of incidents with trucks and other vehicles are the result of human error on part of car or truck driver • Who is government listening to and what is the process that ensures regulations keep up with proven technologies ?
  4. 4. Industry Agenda? • Safe operation makes good business sense; • Proven & tested technology works & comes with ROI benefits;
  5. 5. Technologies and Policy Considerations
  6. 6. Vehicle On-Board Collision Avoidance/Mitigation • Technology – Emergency Braking (v) – Adaptive Cruise Control – Lane Departure Warning (v) – Blind Spot Warning (v) – 360 View (v) • Policy – Driver distraction – Training – Practicality – Maintenance/Reliability – Mandatory vs. Voluntary
  7. 7. Vehicle Out-Board Collision Avoidance/Mitigation • Technology – Seethrough trucks? (v) – Collision Mitigation / Avoidance Systems on cars and light trucks? • Policy – Reliability – Monitoring and Effect
  8. 8. Future Vehicles • Technology – Semi-Autonomous Trucks (v) – Platooning (v) • Policy Considerations – Safety/Manufacturing Standards – Certification/Infrastructure Requirements – Pace of Adoption – Forced vs. Voluntary – Acceptance / Training – Industry and Government – Insurance – Competition
  9. 9. Smart Scales • Technology – Driver & Vehicle identification / monitoring (HOS, location, time of day etc).(v) – Carrier monitoring (safety, licencing, tax, insurance etc.)(v) – Weigh-in-motion – Thermal imaging • Policy Considerations – Pros and cons – Scope and outcome – Accuracy of data and measurement tools – Limitations
  10. 10. Next Steps • Government – Research and more research – Trial and pilot testing – Policy framework – Consistency from jurisdiction to jurisdiction • Industry – Monitor all aspects – Understand practicalities – Adopt where appropriate – Lobby where necessary
  11. 11. Direction of Environmental Technology • CTA and its members are supportive of reducing air quality and GHG emissions for their vehicles. • Air quality regulations saw the adoption of technology that was not ready for the marketplace --- reliability. • GHG Phase I technology was off the shelf --- outside of tire/traction issues nothing to report. • GHG Phase II --- CTA wants the regulations to allow purchasers of heavy duty equipment that is proven to operate in a safe, efficient and effective manner in Canadian operating conditions.
  12. 12. Key Elements to CTA White Paper • Environment Canada must recognize the Canadian configuration advantage over US fleets. • Different equipment, different demand, different operating conditions. • Testing of GHG qualifying technology is paramount --- not only that it reduces GHG, but meets Canadian safety standards and will be able to withstand Canadian winters. • Strengthen Consumer Protection Rules for Users of Heavy Duty Trucking Equipment --- recall system.
  13. 13. CTA SMART Approach • Safe. New equipment must meet Canadian equipment safety standards and not pose a risk to drivers. • Manageable. Fleets must have an exhaustive eligible technology list for their specific operations that meet their customer needs and provincial regulatory requirements. • Adaptable. Recognize the development of unforeseen technologies and the different weight regimes between Canada and the United States. • Reliable. The government must install a more robust recall system for heavy-duty vehicles associated GHG qualifying technologies. • Tested. All GHG technologies imported into Canada must be tested for Canadian operating conditions.
  14. 14. Safe: Health & Safety of Drivers • The safety and well being of our driver community must always be taken into consideration when addressing Phase II. • Forcing technology into the industry that is unproven and unreliable causes trucks to breakdown which has put drivers safety at risk. • Fuel Efficient Tires & Winter Operation. Tires must be fuel efficient and meet winter/rain requirements • Limp Mode & Driver Safety. CLC Section 124& 128 (1) responsibility for government to change limp mode policy. • Moose Bumpers. May cause issues with aerodynamics; but surely one can be built.
  15. 15. Manageable: Vehicle and Component Standards in the Canadian Context • When purchasing their vehicles, regardless of domicile, carriers need as much management flexibility as possible to meet the GHG standards and operate their vehicles coast-to-coast. • Single Wide Tire Weight Treatment • Boat-Tail Regulations • Speed Control. • Natural Gas Engine Inclusion. • Tractor Wheel base Limits. • Steer Axle Weights • Battery Weights • APU Weight Exemptions
  16. 16. Adaptable: GHG Targets Must Reflect Canadian Operating Advantage • The US rule sets GHG reduction targets based on US configurations. Canadian fleets use more productive configurations. If the Government of Canada aligns its targets with the U.S; our targets must be adaptive to the various Canadian configurations not available to US Based fleets. • That the inputs to the GHG simulation models for technologies must use the more productive Canadian configurations as their baseline, not the EPA baseline.
  17. 17. Reliable: Consumer Protection • All qualifying GHG technologies must be backed by the highest consumer protection, both from a warrantee and recall standpoint. Any product that is part of the qualifying GHG menu should be able to operate effectively without causing health/safety concerns or undue economic hardship for drivers and carriers. • The Government of Canada should re-examine the introduction and expansion of the Safer Vehicles for Canadians Act to better protect the purchasers of commercial equipment in Canada.
  18. 18. Tested: Vehicle Suitability and Reliability in Canada • The trucking industry struggles with the reliability of their equipment. The impacts go far beyond maintenance costs as it has impacted the ability for fleets to serve their customers, operate safely and offer the industry as a reliable source of income for drivers. • Utilize ecoTechnology for Vehicles Program for GHG II Testing • Test Tires for Winter Operation • Battery Testing • Ensure Tire Inflation Systems are Tested to Operate in All Seasons • Life Cycle and Safety Impact of Light Weighting Trailers • 6x2 • Smart Axles • Telematics • Aerodynamic device impact on corrosion.
