AR Predicted to Revolutionize the Freight Industry

(FreightWaves) AR could help digitally transform the freight industry. AR is now ubiquitous in the freight niche–from floating insights while on the road about vehicle mechanics and on-road intelligence to bolstering warehouse logistics. The transportation industry employs over 8.7 million people in the United States, with a significant chunk being truck drivers. AR systems could be used for enhancing the driving experience by projecting vital information like driving speed, weather updates, and approaching road stops.
AR could be streamlined to be used across interstate highways to provide truckers with context-specific information in a visually appealing way. AR could be used on smartphones, and AR applications can provide digital assistance to help bring into prominence the repair shops, truck stops, and garages that are on the route.
