Locomation creates Automated Relay Convoy technology for the trucking industry.

A new report from Boundless Impact Research & Analytics Inc. has found that Pittsburgh-based autonomous trucking company Locomation Inc. is able to “dramatically reduce” pollutants in the trucking industry due to the advances offered in its Autonomous Relay Convoy technology.

With ARC, Locomation is able to have two trucks electronically tethered in a convoy that is led by a human driver in the first truck while a second driver rests in the follower truck that operates autonomously behind the first. The trucks periodically swap places to allow the drivers to take turns sleeping which also allows for the operating time of the two trucks to reach between 20-22 hours per day.
