Radar sensors and camera technology make the truck drive automatically. They created the Highway Pilot system which is similar to the autopilot function used by aircraft. Sensors are placed all around the truck to register both moving and stationary objects in the locality to form a three-dimensional map of the surroundings. Using this information, the steering is automatically controlled to keep the vehicle in the center of the lane, and fuel consumption is kept at a minimum as the truck self-navigates different topographies. A feature named Blind Spot Assist employs radar sensors to monitor the sides of the truck and alert the driver to the presence of other road users that may not be immediately visible.
