Solicitation/Project#: 3518RFI01 Solicitation/Project Title: Vehicle Platooning
Description: Pennsylvania is a hub of freight activity, with a significant amount of interstate truck traffic using our highway system, specifically along the I-76, I-78, I-80 and I-81 corridors. As a result, freight movement is a significant economic engine for Pennsylvania. However, with the ever-growing expansion of the freight industry in Pennsylvania comes implications to our roadway network including impacts to safety, mobility, and pavement condition. Some of these impacts may be alleviated through the use of platooning technology. Truck platooning allows two or more commercial vehicles, using a combination of vehicle-to-vehicle
(V2V) communications systems and low level automation to control acceleration and braking, to travel in close proximity.
