Real-world vehicle platooning demo

Posted 26 Jan 2011 at 08:39 UTC by mwaibel Share This

Vehicle platooning, where a convoy of vehicles follows a professional driver in a lead vehicle by adjusting its movements to the distance, speed, and the direction of the car in front, has advanced in great strides (see our previous post from 2005). Following much work in simulation, researchers of the European project Safe Road Trains for the Environment or SARTRE have now achieved a key milestone by performing a real-world demonstration of an autonomous car following a human-driven test vehicle in highway conditions. For more details, have a look at the SARTRE webpage and this SARTRE press release.
