The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and the American Transportation Research Institute will co-host “Stability Control Systems,” the second in a series of national webinars intended to provide peer-to-peer industry insights on the impacts and opportunities associated with onboard safety systems.

The webinar, scheduled for Monday, May 14, will highlight motor carrier experiences with two roll stability control systems, addressing issues such as safety returns on investment, maintenance issues and driver perspectives. Trucking company representatives can simultaneously listen and watch the live FMCSA-sponsored webinar from any location in the United States that has Internet and telephone access.

The webinar will feature Tracy McDonald, distribution engineer for Praxair Canada, and Don Osterberg, vice president of safety and driver training for Schneider National. Both companies have purchased, installed and evaluated different roll stability control systems, and each speaker will provide hands-on insight on the practical experiences and benefits they’ve encountered. In addition, they will provide recommendations for maximizing the safety and economic benefits of roll stability control systems.

The 90-minute webinar — scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. EST — is the second of several webinar events that will highlight industry experiences with onboard safety technologies. Future webinars will review collision warning systems, and smart roadside and wireless technologies.
