The transportation industry stands on the cusp of a remarkable evolution involving the deployment of many technologies that promise to revolutionize how people move about and potentially use land to support those technologies. Vehicles will communicate to one another through vehicle-to-vehicle connectivity and vehicle-to-vehicle infrastructure.
That will facilitate communication of safety issues, such as accidents ahead and near-collision circumstances. Connected commercial freight vehicles will platoon to maneuver as a chain of trucks, drafting behind one another to create fuel savings.
Vehicles also will become more and more automated, relieving the driver of many duties, such as imminent hazard braking and lane choices. Potentially, these vehicles will be driverless.
