Black boxes like the ones used in airplanes are being tested for use in semi trucks. When an airplane crashes, the black box survives and helps authorities reconstruct the crash by giving them information about what occurred beforehand.
Now, Fox Valley Technical College is testing the technology that would allow similar black boxes to be used in semi trucks. The boxes will work in the same way, allowing police to better understand what occurred in semi accidents. It may also make semi drivers more cautious in knowing that their actions are being recorded.
