Robotic Truck Platooning * Holland: 30 Times Faster than Human Reaction Time

* Eindhoven - Showcasing the progress of secure intelligent transport systems


--- NXP Semiconductors N.V. and its partners are showcasing the progress of secure intelligent transport systems in advance of this year’s electronica show in Munich. The demonstrations include platooning live on Munich roads, traffic signal and vehicle synchronization, and technology that protects vulnerable road users based on secure vehicle-to-everything technology (V2X). NXP and DAF Trucks have also announced plans to empower truck platoons to react 30 times faster than humans in 2017. Achieving this goal would mark a significant milestone in the introduction of platooning to fleet operators who expect considerable efficiency and safety gains while maintaining a maximum level of data security...

... NXP, DAF Trucks, TNO and Ricardo previously achieved a breakthrough truck platooning distance of 0.5 seconds between trucks. While platooning at 80 km per hour, trucks that were linked wirelessly via V2X technology, along with high-performance camera and radar systems, were able to maintain a distance of 11 meters flawlessly. The consortium is now cooperating to further bring down the minimum distance between trucks by another 40 percent (to 0.3 seconds which equals 7 meters at 80 km/h). In this new context, the platooning system will need to reliably react 30 times faster than a human driver. This requires the wireless communication between trucks to take place in the timeframe of milliseconds... Current rules require 50 meters between trucks, versus autonomous platooning, in which 11 meters is already possible...
