3M is a 114 year old company based out of Minnesota, USA. 3M has been in Australia for 60 years and this Traffic Safety and Security Division was the first division outside of the USA. The primary role of the division is the marketing of everything reflective which includes traffic signs, vehicle markings and pavement marking. “My presentation on heavy vehicle conspicuity tapes for the heavy vehicle industry is all about safety and drivers being able to see heavy vehicles and all classifications of trucks. Although still voluntary, our goal over the next few years is to have it become mandatory.” The 3M tapes are widely available throughout Australia and best practice for these markings are contained within the ATA Technical Advisory Procedure.

Around since 1942, Air CTI have designed and developed a system for Australian conditions to manage tyre pressure and maximise tyre life. The Gen6 controller (pic) displays all information in one panel. “Depending on load, road and other conditions, you could save 40% to 80% of tyre life; equivalent to 1 set in every 3 tyre set changes being free. Over 10 years, an investment of $7,500 could return $90,000 in savings. Not only does this translate into dollar savings, it is also much better for the environment.” Air CTI is supported and distributed by Kenworth Trucks. “We have participated in many TMC’s from many years ago. TMC 2016 has had good attendance with the right crowd coming through”.

Guardian is an intelligent driver safety solution that works in real-time, using advanced sensors and image processing technology. It tracks micro-movements of the driver’s eyes and head to identify a fatigue or distraction event. When an event is detected, the driver receives in-cab audio and seat vibration alerts that provide immediate intervention to prevent an incident. The Guardian system is focused on incident prevention, mitigation and saving lives – not driver surveillance. While other safety cameras provide a view of the full cab and transmit continual footage, Guardian’s camera views just the driver’s face and only starts recording when it detects a fatigue or distraction event. Then data is transmitted to its 24/7 SafeGuard Center in real time for verification by our trained analysts. Guardian is an affordable aftermarket product that increases the efficiency of fleet operations over time, saving fleet owners money along with protecting their assets and people.
