Peleton - Connected Braking & Acceleration

Similar to Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (CACC), Peloton’s truck platooning system uses Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) communication to connect the braking and acceleration between the two trucks. The V2V link allows the lead truck to control the acceleration and braking of both trucks virtually simultaneously, reacting faster than a human or even radar sensors could.

Aerodynamic Benefit

The reduction in aerodynamic drag of two-truck platoons provides unprecedented fuel savings for both the trailing and the leading truck. Independent fuel efficiency testing by a major fleet, NACFE, and the U.S. Departments of Energy and Transportation has shown double-digit fuel savings. The aerodynamic improvement allows the front truck to save fuel along with the rear truck.
