Truck platooning needs to legally adopted in Canada.

Truck platooning where one driver driving  a truck controls other trucks, typically in a resource extraction usage such as forestry can provide greater safety in a dangerous environment. 


Truck platooning is an emerging vehicle
technology in which trucks are linked by
a computer system that maintains the
desired distance between trucks, as well
as controls acceleration and braking,
reacting faster than a driver typically can.


Platooning uses a dedicated short-range
radio communications protocol
approved for communications at high-
speeds, as well as a CPS system, and radar
technology. 



This technology is only in the testing phase in Canada, while legal in several U.S. states, including Tennessee and Georgia.
