SAE AB is hosting a webinar on March 17, 2022 at 11am PST. It will be on Canada's first on-road truck platooning testing, presented by the
Alberta Motor Transport Association and the University of Alberta. The
registration link is at https://us02web.zoom.us/
Driver-assist technology – provided by Pronto – will allow close-proximity following in platoon formation, reducing drag, and increasing fuel efficiency. Other sensors, radar and camera technology will end information between the trucks to ensure safe operations including, active braking and acceleration systems responding to any acceleration and deceleration by the lead vehicle.
