Technology Innovation- Autonomous Truck Mounted Attenuator

Active work zones are dangerous for highway workers despite safety measures, they risk their lives every day as they perform repairs on the roadways. Although warning signs and arrow boards are the first line of warning for drivers of road work ahead,  another important safety measure is the truck-mounted attenuator.  These provides a safety barrier between moving vehicles and the work zone where workers are active. A recent innovation is an autonomous truck-mounted attenuator.
