The technological capability behind the vehicles that collect and haul waste and recyclables is advancing very rapidly. One of the major themes at this year's Waste Expo, held May 8-11 in New Orleans, was the trend towards "smart" technology and improving use of data. The latest vehicle telematics technologies mean that efficiencies, maintenance and safety can all be maximized to a level never before seen for fleet owners and their operators. Beyond vehicle monitoring and management, we are now at the point where artificial intelligence technology means that the prospect of the driverless refuse/recyclable collection truck, on roads in Europe and North America, is a very likely reality.
