How an Automated Car Platoon Works

With emerging automated driving technology, self-driving cars may soon have the capability to form a platoon on a highway, which could improve travel time, increase lane capacity, and reduce congestion. A car platooning proof-of-concept was tested and evaluated at a U.S. Army facility in Maryland. Learn how platoons work and find out what the researchers discovered.
