Road Trains are coming to Europe in 2020!
Google’s Driverless Cars will be challenged by Europe’s EU’s Safe Road Trains for the Environment (SARTRE) Project, with no modified roadways (like magnetized highways).
When road train technology is commercialized, a driver equipped with platooning software could use an in-vehicle navigation screen to find the nearest platoon and drive to the end of it. “
Consider the many advantages of such a futuristic transportation. system. “Drivers” could do any or all of the following activities:
- even catch 40 winks!
- All of these “distractions” to safe driving, could be safely done. I’m sure you can think of more. :-)
