The technology of automatic repetition of vehicles.
Technology is in the process of development!
The technology of automatic following of the vehicle connects one vehicle with another that allows the driver of the first (leading) of a goods vehicle to manage simultaneously and the second unmanned vehicle in automatic mode.
The technology of automatic following vehicles:
Developed the technology of automatic repetition of vehicles, which is currently being tested. This technology installed on a pair of trucks, one after another. Technology includes the complex of equipment (including communications between vehicles, sensors) and software.
The technology of automatic following of the vehicle connects one vehicle with another following the first, enabling the driver of the first (leading) truck vehicle controlled simultaneously and the second vehicle in automatic mode. The second slave vehicle, which is unmanned, moving for the first copying action of the driver (steering, acceleration and braking). Thanks to the communication system between vehicles they accelerate, maneuver and brake together and can safely operate at close distances. Using this technology it is possible to form columns of the transport means.
This technology allows two times to increase productivity of drivers and to reduce the consumption of fuel overall by 7 % (4.5 % in the first vehicle and 10 % for the next unmanned vehicle).
