Definition Edit

A vehicle platoon is

two to six cars or trucks that are closely spaced and tightly coordinated through both vehicle-to-vehicle communication and some degree of automation. A driver may sit in each vehicle, in only the lead vehicle, or eventually in none of the vehicles. Benefits may include significant fuel savings and, for fleet operators, potentially lower labour costs.[1]
