Platooning

Definition

Platooning — electronically coupling or linking of two or more trucks in a convoy using the lead truck to control those electronically "tethered" behind it, thereby reducing wind resistance and fuel consumption. This grouping of vehicles would increase the capacity of highways by reducing the distance required between trucks. Platooning requires drivers in all vehicles.
