The roads are full of vehicles, cars, buses, trucks, small and big cargo carriers and many other vehicles. It is now a past that the shiny and lavish luxury cars hovered all the attraction while the trucks and cargo carriers were a sore eye sight. Times have changed and so have these trucks and carriers. In fact the garbage trucks have also changed. The technological advancements in the heavy locomotives are real. The locomotives have become more powerful with more sturdy and more powerful engines.
Low operational costs and reduced emissions are the most fundamental requirements that every truck, new or old, used for carrying cargo or garbage have. The technology is introduced to make the trucks run efficiently with reduced costs and less fuel consumption.
The truck manufacturing companies are also revolutionizing the trucking experience by giving more power to the engines. The gear boxes are being changed allowing easy gear shifting to quickly come down from a 100 kilometer per hour to the braking stage of the car. More gears are added for the driver to be able to control the manual transmission all the more efficiently. Trucks are made with some advanced driving features that give the driver utmost comfort like the double clutching system, down shifting and hybrid shifting system, easy braking system and various other features.
The trucks are given a touch screen dashboard that showcase the notification from the engines, denotes the information gathered from the sensors fitted in the engine, the fuel tank, the rear trailer or carrier. Some trucks have two-way cameras mounted on the dashboard for better vision. There are smart controls allocated to the driver to control the lights, wipers, the loading and unloading of the carriers, the locking system and other functions of the truck.
When it comes to revolutionising the trucks, the garbage trucks are not ignored. The garbage trucks are also put through a complete check before getting them on roads for the same. Garbage trucks are infamous for the noise they make while running on the road, a lot of technological advancements are also made to address the concern of noise.
It is not only the new trucks that are being made with all the splashy changes, the old and used garbage trucks for sale are also picked up from the market and modified to make their functioning better. Depending on the current working state of the garbage truck, the basic machines are changed or modified for fuel, emission and noise efficiency. This approach has helped a lot as the old trucks that have become obsolete can be reused and waste can be reduced.
The garbage trucks are now enabled with a smart garbage management system. The residents can track the location, get the time predictions for the pickup of garbage from their location, inform the driver about their availability at the time of pick up and much more functions via a mobile application that makes the whole process smart.
Used or new, both the garbage trucks are being connected to each other, to the residents, and to the garbage management body of the city. Bringing in transparency and efficiency in the system.
Trucks are no more untidy, inefficient vehicles on road, they are moving towards sophisticated and smart transport system with better drivability!
