TOKYO -- For long-distance truck drivers -- and their employers -- tiredness is a constant concern. Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus is set to launch a new app that will allow drivers to monitor their trucks with their smartphones.

With the new app, drivers will be able to change the height of the vehicle and turn the lights on or off, as well as monitor data such as odometer and tire pressure.
