Our July 2018 SWANA Gold Rush Chapter meeting will be held on Wednesday, July 25th, starting at 9:30 am at the Cattlemens Restaurant at 2882 Kitty Hawk Road, Livermore, CA 94551. Due to the need of several folks to leave early in order to make other commitments, the board meeting will start at 9:30 AM, lunch will be served at 11:45, and our presentation will begin at 12:30. Our guest speaker will be Wil Selby. Wil will be discussing some new innovations in collection vehicle safety systems.
FleetGuide is the first LIDAR-based aftermarket safety system which provides autonomous vehicle grade algorithms to waste management vehicles. Unlike traditional camera-based safety systems, the LIDAR-based solution is able to understand the exact location of the vehicle and the obstacles around the vehicle by generating high definition, 360˚ 3-D images. The product improves the driver's situational awareness and provides managers an aggregate view of their fleet's performance to support daily operations, training, and incident liability claims. An example of one of the features, a 360˚ backup cam, is available for viewing here. The product is currently deployed on fleets in the San Francisco Bay area with plans to launch pilots in additional cities across the U.S. this year. For more information, visit www.fleetguide.io.
A buffet lunch will include grilled tri-tip, teriyaki chicken, rice, seasonal vegetables, salad, ranch-style beans bread, coffee, tea, or soda and dessert. Please RSVP by going to https://swanajuly2018meeting.brownpapertickets.com no later than 12:00 noon on Monday, July 23rd. The cost is free for Board Directors, $20 for Gold Rush chapter members, and $30 for non-members.
We hope to see you there.
