This paper describes results to date of a project to prototype, evaluate, and test Driver-Assistive Truck Platooning (DATP), which could have significant positive safety and fuel savings potential for heavy truck operations. The project is led by Auburn University and funded within the Federal Highway Administration Exploratory Advanced Research program. This paper provides selected results from Phase One, which is currently exploring a range of technical and non-technical issues, including assessing real-world business and operational issues within the trucking industry. Specific technical sections address sensing and computing hardware; driver interface; sensor and actuator software and interfacing; control software; and operational environment.
