Autonomous vehicle reality check


It seems everyone is talking about autonomous vehicles at the moment, and for good reason – they have tremendous potential for fleets.

But it was interesting to see analyst Bob O’Donnell’s article on the range of infrastructure, safety and technology challenges facing self-driving vehicles.

Though progress is certainly being made, with our blog last week discussing the introduction of ‘platooning’ semi-autonomous lorries on British roads, this is still a far cry from a fully autonomous, independent vehicle.

While the driver is still a crucial part of the fleet for the time being, Mobile Resource Management (MRM) can help provide some of the benefits that electric and self-driving vehicles promise to offer.

Through real-time analysis of routes, utilisation and vehicle locations, managers can streamline operations, improve productivity and reduce costs.
