Guest: Jim Park, Freelance Trucking Journalist and Former Truck Driver

The last time truck steering systems saw a big change was back in the 1980s as hydraulic power steering replaced manual steering systems. Now after several decades, truck steering is seeing another big change.

Listen to this installment of “Eyes on the Road,” presented by PrePass, as host Evan Lockridge talks with freelance trucking journalist and former truck driver Jim Park about active steering systems. Learn how active steering works, what it means for truck drivers and whether it’s another stepping-stone toward seeing fully or partially autonomous trucks. Evan and Jim also discuss the implications of active steering on truck safety and whether there are any downsides to this new technology.
