Is Platooning the Future of IoT in the Trucking Industry?

Do you remember years ago a toy train set that could be connected by magnets? The magnetic pull would force each individual train to follow the one that came before it. With enough magnetic pull, there would be three or four trains connected, following each other in the same path on the wooden train tracks. Now, let’s expand our thinking and apply this to today’s modern technology. Imagine you are driving down the interstate when you see three or four trucks following, no more than 10 feet behind the other. Except this time, they are not connected by a magnetic pull, but by IoT technology. According to the Washington Post, A wave of new technology intended to make trucks safer — using radar, cameras and reflective light scanning — is sweeping the industry. This new wave of technology is defined as platooning, and it is becoming very real in the trucking industry.

It is impossible to go very long without hearing that IoT, Machine Learning, Cloud Computing, and AI are going to completely transform everything we do, both personally and professionally. Yet, for all the talk, most people are willing to admit that, while they might vaguely know what the concepts are and some of the anecdotal effects of these technologies permeating our everyday lives will be, they don't exactly know how to get started. LHP has created an IoT Analytics Training that focuses on IoT connectivity between the could and live data sets

LHPs Data Analytics team has partnered with the Columbus Chamber of Commerce on the piloting of technology introductions for school students. Cool Coding Awareness Week is scheduled to kick-off October 24-30. For one week,trainers from Eleven Fifty Academy will deliver age-appropriate lessons about computer coding to 1000 Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation students, working alongside teachers, out-of-school educators and a small army of volunteers. Instructors will be at Lincoln, Mt. Healthy, Smith and Taylorsville Elementary Schools, Central Middle School and CSA New Tech High School. LHP has commited to providing 45 hours of hands-on instruction during the classroom sessions. Outside of the classroom, LHP plans to conduct a workshop at kidscommons, using remote-controlled cars and Raspberry Pi processors. Cool Coding Awareness Week: Grades K-1: Learn about the computer languages that drive the hardware Grades 2-6: Learn the basics of computer coding
