Check this out, Japan’s automotive company “NEDO” (http://www.nedo.go.jp) announced about creation of the automatic truck Control System that does not require human intervention. What else will come next that won’t require man’s presents?!
The system developed by the company includes a set of cameras and radars, mounted on a convoy of trucks. Vehicles, controlled by the system are able to move in a column after each other at a safe distance, following a specified route using GPS, reports NEDO.
At the presentation of its Control System technology, which was held on Monday, 25th of February, in the prefecture of Ibaraki, 3 freight trucks drove after each other at a speed of 80 km / h, keeping a stable four-meter distance. Drivers performed only supervisory functions.
NEDO experts continue to work on further improving the technology for its mass distribution in the future.
