Overview of the SARTRE Platooning Project: Technology Leadership Brief 2012-01-9019

Vehicles are increasingly being sold with partially automated systems in order to improve fuel consumption, safety or driver convenience. The SARTRE project is an EU FP7 project which brings together seven companies to explore how road trains, or platoons, can continue the trend of automation to bring benefits to fuel consumption, safety, congestion and driver convenience. In order to enable the introduction of such systems in the near future, the project is assuming that no changes to the road infrastructure will be required, and that any systems added to the vehicles are either already in production or are close to being in production. This paper provides an overview of the project and presents some of the preliminary results.
