PIT Group’s truck platooning hits the road in a Canadian first

PIT Group’s truck platooning hits the road in a Canadian first

History was made as FPInnovations' transportation division PIT Group, Transport Canada, Auburn University, and Minimax Express Transportation collaborated to perform Canada's first ever on-road commercial vehicle platoon trial.

The successful highway platooning tests took place between October 29 and November 2 on highways around Montreal, La Tuque, Trois-Rivières and Blainville, Quebec. The platoon consisted of two heavy duty transport trucks. Truck platooning is an emerging fuel-saving technology in which the trucks, driven in a convoy, are linked by a computer system that maintains the desired distance between trucks, as well as controls acceleration and braking, reacting faster than a driver usually can. Drivers were at the wheels of both trucks the entire time, but in the future, only one driver will be at the wheel of the lead truck followed by automated trucks. However, that technology is several years away from being a reality.
