Smart Garages and Smart Truck Terminals of the Future


Visitors: 351

In the future and our home garages will be net-centrically communicating with both our home and our car. And when we are ready to go and get in our car, it will start itself, unplug itself from the hydrogen gas collector that has been making hydrogen out of the air all day and adjust the seat for us to get in. Then the garage door will open and as we back out the garage door will close again, but as it closes it will turn into a giant mere so we can see as we are backing up.

  • What Does This Have to Do With The Trucking Industry?
  • What Does This Have to Do With Trucking Terminals
  • What Does This Have to Do With Warehouses?

The answers to these questions are quite simple really. What does a truck do when it leaves the terminal? It is the same as leaving a Smart Garage at home. The driver will walk out to the truck which has been running for 4-5 minutes and the driver will get in, the seat will adjust, seat belt will move across the body and buckle, the mirrors will adjust and the GPS unit will show the position and a complete read-out will be on the screen. All the driver has to do is pay attention, watch for traffic and have a safe trip.

Now then let's refresh here and think back to the Smart Home Garage of the Future and think to ourselves how all this will work. The home user will enjoy the systems, but they do not really need them, as they return just a little quality of life for a lot of cost. But a trucking company that can save 15 minutes of a driver's time each day at the terminal or a loading area, that means efficiency, labor cost savings and that means higher profits. So let's look again at the home system and smart garages of the future one more time and why these are going to be soon available and project that concept into the trucking industry.
