Heather Jones was a young mum of two when she left her comfortable job as a secretary to become a long-haul truck driver.At 51, she is one of Australia's leading female figures in the trucking industry - it's a business Ms Jones has been part of for 27 years, and one she said has been a 'blast'.The Perth-based mother-of-two revealed she hit the road, with her two young daughters in tow, when she was just 24.At the time she recalled she was working as a secretary for a mining company when the call went out for truck drivers to transport materials around the mine.'The job offered double the money, and half the stress,' Ms Jones told FEMAIL.Her progression to driving long-haul big rig trucks came when her husband left her and her two girls, Kersti and Chelsea, in the early '90s.Ms Jones needed a lifeline, and a friend, and a fellow truckie came to the rescue.'A mate of mine was managing a trucking company in Karratha in Western Australia,' she said.'And he offered me a job. Without that break I have no idea where we would be now.'But the offer to drive big rigs came with one strict proviso: her girls, then five and four, weren't allowed to get out of the truck.Life driving long-haul trucks around Western Australia not only gave the new single mum a great income, but it also provided a mobile home - one that came decked out with bunks, a fridge and built-in closets - for the family.While breaking into the heavily male-dominated industry was 'extremely challenging', she said she found camaraderie among others who lived on the road.'People know you on the highway and look out for you,' she said of the men and women who she referred to as her 'trucking family.'Ms Jones explained that at the time, the family were spending 'around 90 per cent on the road driving' so a decision was made to home-school her two girls.'No matter where we went we always had book work and school work, and I tried to make it fun and entertaining and enjoyable,' she said.The family ended up spending a total of seven years on the road and decided to call Perth home when her girls hit their early teens and told her they wanted to attend school.While she was working driving trucks, in 2004, the dynamic Ms Jones struck out on her own and set up her own heavy haulage business, Success Transport.Though she mortgaged her house to finance the operation, getting a loan from the bank, was impossible, she recalled.'I spent hours every day trying to get a bank loan, only to face disappointment. I finally succeeded by going through a finance broker,' she explained.Heading up her own trucking business was tough, Ms Jones said.Not only was she forced to be more competitive and work harder, she also had to contend with lasting prejudice.'Unfortunately, you have to give 200 per cent, and then you're asked: "Who did you sleep with to get where you are?".'You really need to prove you can do what you're paid to do.'The business is one her daughters, Kersti now 29, and Chelsea, 28, have grown up in, AutoNews- Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5193355/Australian-mother-opens-truck-driver.html?ITO=1490&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490

https://roboticsandautomationnews.com/2018/12/19/scania-and-rio-tinto-trialling-autonomous-truck-in-western-australian-mine/20332/ Truckmaker Scania and mining giant Rio Tinto are testing an autonomous truck in a Western Australian mine. The first phase of the trial started in August 2018 and involves a Scania XT 8×4 autonomous tipper truck working separately from Dampier’s active operations. During this initial stage, a safety driver rides in the vehicle to observe the truck’s performance and, if necessary, intervenes. In subsequent phases, additional autonomous Scania trucks will be added to develop vehicle-to-vehicle awareness and intelligent fleet supervisory controls.

Australia - a country road trains. In the Australian outback, where for hundreds of kilometers around you to meet a couple of other cattle-farms, or "stations", as they call them, train - a vital necessity. After all, in order to deliver the goods to the destination of the train, the owner, such as a sheep station would have to get their living from the load to the nearest railway hundreds of kilometers. Road trains - powerful trucks, which stretches for two, three (and sometimes more) of huge trailer, capable in a matter of days to cross the Green Continent, connecting the country's states and territories.

The self-driving truck doesn’t really have a front or back. It can drive in either direction equally well thanks to four-wheel steering, which in turn means a strip mine doesn’t need to allocate space for one of the massive vehicles to turn around after each trip so a driver can see where they’re going. It can simply shuttle back and forth, reversing direction as needed. If you like DPCcars videos please subscribe: https://goo.gl/BSIaFc The latest version of its Autonomous Haulage System dump truck, however, was designed from the ground up to be completely autonomous. As you can see, there’s no longer a driver’s cab. In fact, aside from the direction the dumping bed raises, the self-driving truck doesn’t really have a front or back. It can drive in either direction equally well thanks to four-wheel steering, which in turn means a strip mine doesn’t need to allocate space for one of the massive vehicles to turn around after each trip so a driver can see where they’re going. It can simply shuttle back and forth, reversing direction as needed. The other advantage to being able to operate in either direction is that Komatsu was able to design the new autonomous truck so that weight was evenly distributed between all four wheels, allowing it to maximize its payload—over 250 tons—which in turn means less trips back and forth to be emptied.

Imagining the future of the vast trucking industry that will become autonomous in the coming years. Subscribe for our newest TDC original mini-documentary: http://bit.ly/2pu8oNz Video by Bryce Plank and Robin West. More information on this topic: The future of trucking: http://tcrn.ch/2f1cx2Z http://bit.ly/2pyRU2K Tesla's electric truck: http://bit.ly/2nKwlQi Platooning: http://bit.ly/2eg8UKi Truckers discuss the future of trucking: http://bit.ly/2oG2MM9 Script: The semi-truck. Our modern lives are completely dependent on them. Look around you. Every object you see probably traveled on at least one big rig. Here in America, truckers make up 2% of the workforce. But with multiple game-changing technologies converging simultaneously — and the relentlessness of the hyper-competitive global marketplace — the industry will be revolutionized within the next two decades. This is an examination of the future of trucking. Before we get into the technology that will turn it all upside-down, we must first understand the way this extremely fragmented industry works now. To the numbers! There are about 3 million drivers for 2.5 million trucks in the US. Those trucks are owned by 532,000 carrier companies, but 90% of these fleets have fewer than six trucks—and half of all carriers are single individuals who own and operate their own rig. Then you have the middlemen, the freight brokers. These 13,000 companies play matchmaker between the manufacturers and wholesalers (who are trying to get their goods to market) and the retailers (who make the final sale to the consumer). Because this industry is so splintered, there aren’t universal software systems tying it all together. In fact, 67% of shippers don’t use software at all and rely solely on paper records—in 2017! This creates tremendous inefficiency. When every piece of information has to be communicated through human interactions, drivers are frequently forced to wait hours to book or pick-up a load. And sometimes they just don’t, an estimated 20% of trucks on the road are empty. To solve these problems, investors are spending hundreds of millions of dollars on startups competing to develop the silver bullet, a software layer that can be used by every segment of the industry. Another area ripe for modernization is how trucks are powered. Today, medium and heavy duty trucks account for 6% of the greenhouse gas emissions produced in America. To their credit, companies like Walmart are looking to transition to fleets powered by cleaner natural gas, the bridge fuel America has embraced to transition to renewables. That’s where Tesla comes in. Elon Musk, CEO of the electric car manufacturer, plans to unveil an electric-powered semi-truck in the next six months. Battery range will be the biggest obstacle to the widespread adoption of electric trucks as Tesla’s pack will probably only have a 200-300 mile range. The other challenge will be having enough charging stations — and enough power available at each station — to support fleets of Tesla trucks. The Nikola One attempts to overcome these limitations. This gorgeous, hydrogen fuel cell truck will have a range up to 1,200 miles. The young company plans to begin leasing their trucks by 2020 for about $6,000 a month — including the cost of fuel — but it will first need to build a network of about 400 charging stations throughout the country. Cutting the emissions of semi-trucks is great for the environment, but the real cost-saving opportunity lies in cutting out the drivers. It’s been more than a year now since six convoys of semi-autonomous “smart” trucks arrived at the Netherlands port city of Rotterdam after leaving factories from as far away as Sweden and Southern Germany. That experiment relied on a system called platooning, a semi-autonomous feature allowing trucks to find each other, link up, and draft to cut down on wind drag, saving energy—just like in NASCAR or the Tour de France. And in October, a self-driving truck completed the first commercial shipment by an autonomous vehicle, delivering a load of Budweiser more than 120 miles across Colorado. A human got the truck on the highway and engaged the autonomous system, then climbed out of the driver’s seat. That truck was made by Otto motors, which was recently acquired by Uber. And dozens of massive, 240-ton trucks are already being used in Australian mines. So that’s the near-future we’ll see in the next 10 years: fleets of driverless trucks. Some will be designed to be autonomous, while others will have the system installed later. Many will be electric, and nearly all will be connected to efficient networks that are not slowed down by frequent human input.

They can be seen towing anything from a single trailer through to triples and quads. The sound is a little bit ordinary in some of the South Australian out back scenes due to the fact that the wind was blowing that hard it was actually difficult just to stand up at times.
