A vehicle platooning is part of a suite of features that self-driving cars might employ. A platoon is a group of vehicles that can travel very closely together, safely at high speed. Each vehicle communicates with the other vehicles in the platoon.
Modern communication such as Wireless, GNSS positioning, radar/lidars sensing plus drive-by-wire steering and throttle allows for computers to take control of cars – assuming they are all highly accurate and secure synchronized.
