Speaker: Richard Bishop (Bishop Consulting)*

Driver Assisted Truck Platooning, enabled by V2V Communications, offers substantial fuel economy and safety benefits for long haul trucking. A project started in 2013 under the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Exploratory Advanced Research program has funded Auburn University, Peloton, Peterbilt Trucks, Meritor-Wabco, and the American Transportation Research Institute to investigate not only technical performance, but also the practical aspects of integrating this type of system into a modern trucking operation.
This Webinar will provide an overview of the project, results to date, and future plans.
A Q&A session moderated by Maxime Flament will conclude the webinar.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
