AbstractThe National Research Council Canada – Automotive and Surface Transportation portfolio conducted a literature review of cooperative truck platooning systems (CTPS), exploring potential benefits, enabling technologies, tests and demonstrations, factors affecting safety and fuel consumption, and other considerations. The literature review will provide Transport Canada with background information, and gather the intelligence required to define a workplan for a possible CTPS test and evaluation campaign, quantifying energy savings and emissions reduction, and exploring safety issues and feasibility. Important knowledge gaps, particularly with regard to conditions and constraints unique to Canada (e.g. geography, climate, infrastructure, social-political issues, etc.), were identified.
