Truck platooning represents a promising means to enhance efficiency of freight transport. Developments of truck platooning date back to the early 1990s, starting with projects to illustrate the technical feasibility followed by projects investigating the potential of fuel savings up to feasible business models and multi-brand and multi-fleet platooning approaches. However, the deployment and adoption of truck platooning technologies need to detail, harmonise and finally meet diverse requirements. Figure 3.1 sketches requirement dimensions related to truck platooning, which span from safety and security requirements, stakeholder requirements to technical and functional requirements. In this chapter, selected results addressing requirements related to energy-efficient truck platooning, user and other road user requirements, road safety requirements and technical requirements related to C-ITS are presented.
