The NOC provides eligibility for each platooning operation. Continued monitoring means we’re “always aware”, able to pair trucks or dissolve platoons at any time in response to changing weather, traffic, truck, or other conditions. We incorporate truck data and the external environment to ensure driver safety at all times.
Trucks (individual or paired) can be alerted to safety conditions they may soon face including accidents, traffic, construction, and changing weather.
To ensure platooning is safe at all times, we dynamically manage the geographic areas and conditions in which platooning can occur–on divided multilane highways under lower traffic conditions.
The NOC identifies potential platooning partners, establishing approval for platooning to begin when trucks are authenticated and conditions are safe.
Based on a variety of factors, including load and braking performance, the NOC intelligently orders the trucks to ensure they can drive and brake together safely.
Under appropriate conditions and upon NOC approval, two drivers can choose to form a platoon, increasing fuel efficiency for both trucks.
