Is Platooning the Future of IoT in the Trucking Industry?

Do you remember years ago a toy train set that could be connected by magnets? The magnetic pull would force each individual train to follow the one that came before it. With enough magnetic pull, there would be three or four trains connected, following each other in the same path on the wooden train tracks. Now, let’s expand our thinking and apply this to today’s modern technology. Imagine you are driving down the interstate when you see three or four trucks following, no more than 10 feet behind the other. Except this time, they are not connected by a magnetic pull, but by IoT technology. According to the Washington Post, A wave of new technology intended to make trucks safer — using radar, cameras and reflective light scanning — is sweeping the industry. This new wave of technology is defined as platooning, and it is becoming very real in the trucking industry.
