Trucking around the world will be radically transformed in the next years as the autonomous trucks "platooning" is now a reality. Companies are enabling safe cross-country travel of long convoys of these big juggernauts that resemble slower and larger versions of drafting or slipstreaming in auto racing. The autonomous trucks platooning has been on engineers' work desks for some time and has passed two stages by now: the first one focuses on designing, testing, and refining the self-driving too ...
Numerous trailers, eighteen-wheelers, and buses provided with self-driving technologies will be riding highways in the next few years. Engineers expect autonomous trucks are going to be safer and less costly, but they are cautious as the technical challenges that face driverless juggernauts are a bit complex than the ones for self-driving cars. Autonomous trucks will be more controversial than driverless vehicles if they do take hold the highways, as trucks are not just long cars. Companies ne ...
