Topic:  Tractor-Trailer Data – Past, Present, and Future
Speaker:  Paul Miller – Staff Electrical Engineer at Grote Industries


It has always been important for vehicle operators to be aware of what is going on with their vehicle and their surroundings.  As technology has evolved, regulations have followed with the goal of keep our roads safe.  This is especially important with Class 8 heavy trucks.  What information is exchanged on our current tractor-trailer systems?  What technologies are being used?  What information do we want to be available?  What work is being done to solve these challenges?
