Freightliner’s parent company, Daimler, demonstrated the platooning of autonomous trucks on Germany’s autobahn last month. The three trucks were linked with specialized software which enables them travel together yet allows the movement of traffic in and out of the platoon…all without driver intervention on two of the three trucks. Watch the video above.
Daimler, the owner of Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner, recently showcased their driverless truck. The truck reached speeds of nearly 55 MPH on the Autobahn while the driver passively looked at his tablet and paperwork. Daimler said the autonomous truck could be a reality by 2025.
