Platooning may be the new way of travelling on motorways in as little as ten years time - and the EU-financed SARTRE project has carried out the first successful demonstration of its technology at the Volvo Proving Ground close to Gothenburg, Sweden.This is the first time the EU-financed development teams in SARTRE try their systems together outside the simulators.

Vehicle platooning, as envisaged by the SARTRE project, is a convoy of vehicles where a professional driver in a lead vehicle drives a line of other vehicles. Each car measures the distance, speed and direction and adjusts to the car in front. All vehicles are totally detached and can leave the procession at any time. But once in the platoon, drivers can relax and do other things while the platoon proceeds towards its long haul destination.

Exciting news, hope they find a need to implement digital currencies in their project so that we're able to reward the "professional diver" for his services too.

Just hope that the "professional driver" up front doesn't get distracted by that pretty hitchhiker on the shoulder of the road, get sleepy, forget his medication, or have a sudden cardiac arrest. An entire convoy piling up into a huge pile of twisted smoking metal will not be good propaganda for this.
