Truck Platooning Early Deployment Assessment Phase 2

This project builds upon the previous Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Joint Program Office (JPO) exploratory research to assess and study two and three truck platooning technologies and operations and is a direct follow on to the Phase 1 Truck Platooning Early Deployment Assessment project. In the near future, the commercial trucking industry is planning to deploy CACC truck platoon. System-wide impacts and impact on truck drivers and light duty vehicle drivers still needs to be assessed for operational and safety impacts. Building on this previous research, this project will conduct a multi-state, long-haul field test of Level 1 Cooperative Automation of Two-Truck Platooning operations with similar trucks (e.g., same fleet, size, and make/model). This project will assess the impacts and benefits of long haul two-truck platooning on truck drivers, other road users, fleet owners, traffic operations & safety, and policy under a variety of operational conditions. This will include multiple drivers, up to 3 platoons covering various environments and operational conditions over an extended period of time (e.g., weeks/months) over multiple State lines. (Funding/award could be distributed among up to 3 teams.)
