Truck platooning is the virtual linking of two or more trucks in a convoy, using autonomous technology to connect the driving support systems. The trucks are lead by a leader vehicle, and are set to maintain a tight following distance. Through our extensive experience with the Army’s Leader-Follower program, aimed at the automation of supply trucks, Robotic Research has compiled one of the largest records of autonomous vehicle miles logged.
Proof is in the edge case.
Several autonomous vehicle providers in the trucking industry are demonstrating platooning in benign conditions, where the weather is ideal and road surfaces are smooth and marked. Robotic Research has been specifically focusing on addressing the edge cases, such as poor weather, dust and off-road conditions, to ensure a robust autonomous system that is necessary for operating in all conditions and during mission-critical operations for the military.
