Kenworth Truck Company
Kenworth teamed with Heil Trailer International
to produce a T800 High-Tech Truck.
When the driver’s fingerprint is verified via a sensor,
the vehicle can be operated at normal traffic speeds. If the fingerprint doesn’t match,
the vehicle can still be started. But it’s at a severely restricted horsepower,
thus limiting operation to well below normal speeds. The fleet dispatcher also receives
an alert message via wireless communication that an unauthorized user is involved.
