TORONTO, Ont. – Transport Canada has officially unveiled rules that will mandate ELDs (electronic logging devices), replacing long-established paper logbooks. Here are 10 key things you need to know:
TORONTO, Ont. -- As trailers become more complex – thanks to onboard telematics and diagnostics systems, more auxiliary equipment, and more-sensitive electronics – maintenance demands will become more complex as well. Is your wiring in good shape?
TORONTO, Ont. -- Until someone develops a cable-free electrical system for vehicles, we're stuck with wires. And wires are generally not a problem until some outside force disturbs or damages them. Here's five ways to keep things running.
TORONTO, Ont. -- Tailgating tends to be discouraged. Just don’t tell those who research the benefits of platooning. In the ongoing search for better fuel economy, engineers have found ways to connect tractor-trailers through electronic handshakes, automatically maintaining tight following distances that improve aerodynamic drag. Will it work in the real world?
MONTREAL, Que. – Engineers have proven they can create cars and trucks that move without drivers at the controls, but confidence in early autonomous vehicles has been shaken in the wake of some high-profile collisions.
