This month, Rob Hooper, CEO at Atlantic Logistics will join executives from other major companies in a panel discussion on September 25 at the Connected Fleets USA event in Atlanta, GA.

The title of the panel discussion is “Autonomous Trucks: Why the Economics Win Out.” Autonomous vehicles, especially in the trucking industry, are one of the hottest topic today. The panelists will consider issues such as: 1) the technology required to retrofit existing rigs to self-driving trucks; 2) managing the transition of driver to highway pilot in an automated convoy; 3) exploring the business models around an automated fleet, from operations through staffing and consider the potential savings in lives, property damage and exposure to liability.
