Potential Improvements in Safety and Efficiency with Autonomous Trucking
This report compares and analyzes the "relative advantages and disadvantages of autonomous and connected large trucks relative to light-duty vehicles."
Large trucks have an advantage over small cars in their height. Sensors are generally more out of harms way of dirt and debris just by being taller.
"Large trucks have the ability to electronically connect and platoon, affording safety and efficiency improvements; potential annual fuel savings per truck are similar to an entire year of fuel consumption for a typical light-duty vehicle."
"Platooning can be well planned or scheduled for trucks with similar routes or destinations, especially for vehicles within the same fleet or with a platooning service provider." It can also serve drivers well for rest time and may help reduce the number of required drivers overall.
