THE NEW TRUCK PLATOONING SYSTEM

The Ministry of Transport of Singapore and the terminal operator PSA Group have signed an agreement with group Scania and Toyota Tsusho to develop an innovative transport system with convoys of semi truck driving-automated called truck platooning which will be initially tested for the transport of containers in Singapore port, from one terminal to another.

Initially the group Scania and Toyota will design and will test a truck platooning technology to local transport conditions and traffic; then on the results obtained, the Ministry of Transport and the PSA group will choose one of the two companies only, to make trial trips in Singapore on urban road of 10 km approximate.
