05. JUN 2019

Conference Halle A4 Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics IML

14:00-15:30 h | Hall A4 Forum IV

Subjects: specialists / recruitment | technologies | artificial intelligence | e-mobility | e-commerce / retail | digitalization

Speaker: Christian Drenthen, Roger Schwarz, Wolfgang Inninger, Dr Christian Ballarin

Type: Conference

Speech: German, English

The trend in the automation of vehicles is a development that has been the subject of much discussion in particular in the logistics sector. In the context of advances in the progress of technology and growing user acceptance, the role of the human being in road haulage must be fundamentally re-imagined.

Current value-creation systems within the transport sector depend on people. However, the latest developments – whether these are, for example, platooning or highly automated driving functions for dedicated applications – have the potential to free aspects of transport from the human factor. With the capacities that will be released in this way, it is possible radically to restructure and re-imagine the work of the lorry driver.

The complex requirements concerning time at the wheel and rest times could then be reinterpreted so that business can operate with flexibility, effectiveness and with a high level of efficiency. Two examples: In the first place, several drivers in a platoon can now share tasks and thereby increase actual driving time to almost 24 hours  – provided that the statutory regulators are adjusted/adhered to. Secondly – assuming that lorry traffic within the factory boundaries can be, to a large extent, automated  – inbound traffic at the interface between internal and external traffic can be separated. The driver changes at the factory boundary to a waiting outbound lorry. Any waiting times during loading and unloading will then become obsolete. The drive time to work time ratio will increase significantly.

The enormous increase in productivity with the same level of staffing requirements can balance out a serious and highly topical problem in the transport sector – the shortage of drivers.

The specialist forum on “Automated driving functions and the role of driving and rest times in the context of the shortage of drivers in road haulage“ is intended to provide discussion on the opportunities and case studies and highly automated  commercial vehicles in road haulage, in particular the extent to which the work of the lorry driver can be redefined.
