Video: Volvo project -Eat breakfast, read a newspaper behind the wheel!

The EU-financed SARTRE project has carried out the first successful demonstration of its technology at the Volvo Proving Ground close to Gothenburg, Sweden.

The project is working on ‘road train’ based autonomous driving, wherein cars autonomously follow a lead vehicle thereby reducing driving stress, especially on long journeys.

The concept of a perfectly functioning autonomous road train not only increases road safety and reduces emissions, but also enables the drivers in a road train to relax, may be have breakfast, watch a movie or read a newspaper at 90kmph! Video below:
