With the advances in connective technology and automated driving support systems, how can the journey towards platooning meet the operational challenges facing the transportation and logistics industry today?
To uncover the benefits to technology and transport performance, truck platooning has to become plannable and integrable in the transportation planning, execution process and transportation management systems. HERE has developed intelligent truck platooning services that can be utilized to enable platooning along the transportation process chain, from planning to execution to reporting.
During this webinar, HERE will share its insight into the work being done to make platooning a reality.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- What technology exists to make platooning possible and what is still needed
- How to analyze your fleet’s routes using data from HERE to determine if platooning would work for you
- The ways federal and state laws are addressing platooning and autonomous technologies
- How to read beyond the headlines to gain greater insight into the future of autonomous and platooning technology

Ross Froat, Director of Engineering and Information Technology at American Trucking Associations, is an experienced policy engineer, field technician and information technology director with a demonstrated history of working in the transportation/trucking industry. With the increasing convergence between on-board and off-board truck technologies, there is an industry need to ensure that adopted technologies – either voluntary or through government regulation – are integrative and cost-beneficial to the trucking industry. In his current position, Froat serves as a key link between ATA’s Technology & Maintenance Council, the Information Technology & Logistics Council and appropriate ATA Policy Committees.Before joining ATA, Froat served as a service manager at Idealease Truck Leasing and a diesel technician at Penske Truck Leasing. He is a member of the Society of Automotive Engineers and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
