    I can see this being somewhat useful for long haul work, but aside from that, would it be worth the money?

    This spells out lots of law suits. I believe in not automating trucks on the road and having all drivers be in control at all times. So if one truck falls off the bridge or takes an exit the rest who don't want to will be forced to follow if engaged? This technology is not going to happen in another 30 years when more advanced.

    +warren7127 it's not about liberals. Please try and use some brain cells to think through your retarded logic. The reason it was frowned upon back in the day(rightly so) is because you couldnt rely on all the drivers in the convoy being safe. Some of them had been driving for hours and hours, some were fresh, and a couple were probably drinking on the job or half asleep and still driving. Now tell me "smart" guy if your the dude in that first truck of your beloved convoy, do you really want to hang your life on the hopes that all those truckers behind you are up to snuff and as wide awake as you are? React as quickly as you can to slow down or hit the brakes? Any intelligent human knows the right answer to that, lets see what you think. All it takes is one tired or distracted driver to #uck up the convoy for everyone.

    Stop telling those tales,instead try to fix some real problems on freightliner trucks.Like steering wheel is not stable, fuel pedal is on center and most of drivers have right leg pain.Freightliner truck are also too noisy and primitive.

    First maybe should go small cars instead of those heavy weight. If such crashes into some smaller, the consequenses will be much worse than if small car crasshes into other car.

    Yes, but those technologies that soon will make trucks need no more truck drivers. What a shame 🙁

    Back in the day, that was called a "Convoy", & it was usually frowned upon by the public & law enforcement. But once the fucking liberals pretend it's something THEY came up with to be more green, then it's OK to do?
    Don't get me wrong, I'm all for the advancement in technology,  but don't act like it's an all new concept. And BTW, The old Peterbilts, from back in the day, had a grill that opened & closed as well 😉

    OK, but there is a real train, woking?, and I guess, it would mean an illegal use of the road. They will need to contruct their own highways
