Semi-Autonomous Road Train Trial Is a Success

A semi-autonomous, four-vehicle road train has been successfully demonstrated at Volvos test track in Hllered, Sweden, paving the way for on-road trials. In a road train, cars and trucks with the same destination are grouped together, and control is handed over to a lead vehicle thats under the command of a professional driver. I have to admit that in the beginning it feels really unusual, when youre kind of prepared to take over at any moment, said Erik Coelingh, technical project manager at Volvo, who enjoyed some relaxing time behind the wheel during a road train trial. Road trains are ideal for rush hour traffic, where cars and trucks follow similar patterns each day.
