While autonomous trucks seem far away at this point, there are new advanced driving systems available today that can make the industry safer and more efficient. The trucking industry is now working aggressively with FMCSA to promote active driver assistance systems that will support truck drivers in their daily operations. This new collaboration, named Tech-Celerate Now, will utilize research, information and education to increase awareness and adoption of these important systems by fleets and truck drivers alike.
Dan Murray will provide important insight and newly developed research findings on the benefits – and challenges – associated with accelerating adoption of active safety systems.

Daniel Murray has more than 26 years of experience in a broad range of transportation fields including trucking research and economics, transportation safety technologies and autonomous vehicles.

As senior vice president for the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI), Murray is responsible for managing ATRI's transportation research, testing and evaluation activities, and he leads multiple national activities including the U.S. DOT-sponsored Freight Mobility Initiative. Prior to his employment with ATRI, Murray spent several years working in economic development for a Chicago business consortium and four years developing transit programs, policy and funding with the Regional Transit Board in Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN.

He is actively involved in the National Academies' Transportation Research Board as vice chair of the Trucking Research Committee, and presently sits on the boards of the Freight Mobility Research Institute, Mid-America Transportation Center and the Minnesota Freight Advisory Committee.

Murray received his BA from Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN, and his MS from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL.
