    Autonomous Trucks Powered by NXP Technology: European Truck Platooning Challenge

    Published on Apr 20, 2016

    On April 6 2016, six convoys by six major truck manufacturers from six cities in Sweden, Germany, and Belgium set out on a journey across Europe. Their goal was Rotterdam. Their mission was to demonstrate what is possible with Vehicle-to-X (V2X), radar, and vision technology today, this was published in a joint announcement with DAF: Press Release
    The six convoys were part of the European Truck Platooning Challenge, an event organized by the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment. NXP had a crucial role as official partner of the DAF Trucks team. A video of NXP, DAF, TNO, and Ricardo provides an impressive glimpse of future freight transport in Europe. It started with two trucks at the DAF production site in Westerlo, Belgium. NXP also equipped several other teams in the challenge with the technology that make platooning possible. The technology is a combination of radar and camera-based systems for distance control and lane keeping, as well as V2X technology.

    The future of freight transport: European Platooning Challenge

    Published on Apr 20, 2016

    The European Platooning Challenge demonstrated what's possible with Vehicle-to-X (V2X), radar, and vision technology today. Six convoys demonstrated an application for self-driving technologies in trucks, called platooning. The front truck driver controls the platoon. All others follow autonomously, leaving braking and acceleration control to the lead vehicle.

    V2X means that cars wirelessly exchange information with other vehicles or infrastructure systems. The technology is a combination of radar and camera-based systems for distance control and lane keeping, as well as V2X technology.
