You can not imagine anything under the heading platooning? Trucks will in future be chained to each other electronically, thus exploiting the roads close formation. This saves fuel and transport area, also it prevents elephant race and rear-end collisions. In jams the truck columns are performed automatically. New driver assistance systems will also facilitate the daily lives of professional drivers. Automated Parking or automatic loading and unloading will be granted.
Even without networking is the future in the transport industry nothing. Information about the driver, vehicle, load and route infrastructure are exchanged digitally and in real time. Goods coming so the future more quickly and efficiently to their destination. Especially in big cities can be as optimized logistics reduce traffic.
