The November issue of Thinking Highways is out now in its new web platform format and the cover feature focuses on the latest developments in truck platooning that builds on the extraordinary work carried out in the late 1990s and early 2000s on the CHAUFFEUR and CHAUFFEUR II projects.
H3BM’s resident autonomous vehicle expert Richard Bishop has co-authored a comprehensive article that leaves no stone unturned in its forensic analysis of what’s possible (and what isn’t) and how the technology has evolved over the last 20 years.
“As elegant a concept as auto-follow is in combining human intelligence with fuel/labor savings,” says Richard, “it can’t spur new industry efficiency gains unless the fundamental platooning capability of V2V-enabled close following is perfected.”
This is one of 19 articles in this issue that also looks at disruptive analytics, electronic toll collection, connected and autonomous vehicles, automobility and the decarbonisation of transport.
