Automated truck platooning is getting an increasing interest for its potentially beneficial effects on fuel consumption, driver workload, traffic flow efficiency, and safety. Nevertheless, one major challenge lies in the safe and comfortable transitions of control from the automated system back to the human drivers, especially when they have...

Automated platooning of trucks has its beneficial effects on energy saving and traffic flow efficiency. The vehicles in a platoon, however, need to maintain an extremely short headway to achieve these goals, which will result in a heavily blocked front view for the driver in a following truck. Monitoring surrounding traffic environment and...

This paper presents a multi-layer approach to Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (CACC) to improve the platoon cohesion subject to limited vehicle actuation capabilities. The objective of the design is to guarantee that the vehicles in the platoon keep their desired relative position, while maintaining desirable platoon properties in terms of...

Truck platooning. Two or three trucks connected by a ‘virtual tow bar’. The leading truck is controlled by a driver while the following trucks accelerate, brake and steer all by themselves without the intervention of a driver. Platooning saves on fuel, cuts emissions and optimises costs. And the driver sitting in the second or third truck can...
