Road Trains: Future of Highway Driving?



Reuters - "With the recent successful test of road-train technology in Sweden, developers say convoys of cars on Europe's motorways could become a reality within 10 years provided car makers can agree on a common standard."

what's new about road trains?

Australia has had them for decades...

I wouldn't want my car ferried on them though...

Road trains make sense on open stretches of road in sparsely populated areas...

It sucks to be on the same road with them though...

Over the raod driving is not the problem. It's urban driving, traffic congestion.. We need good mass transit.

Well, my kitchen is now fully automated. In fact, it's not even in the same building where I live. I merely enter a sequence of numbers on an electronic device I carry with me at all times, then using voice commands, I can specify what I want to eat. thirty minutes later, it shows up at my door.

There is no such thing as good mass transit.
