Truck platooning is one of the major trends being witnessed in the . In vehicle platooning, multiple cars, buses, and trucks travel at an aerodynamically efficient distance and maintain the distance at high speeds. For platooning, the autonomous system installed in vehicles uses ADAS, along with high-end specific platooning algorithms, involving the use of radar, LiDAR, and cameras. Vehicles in the fleet communicate via wireless connectivity and automatically synchronize speed and braking actions, thereby, resulting in better fuel efficiency and improved traffic congestion control for all vehicles in the platoon.

According to Technavio analysts, one of the key factors contributing to the growth of the global autonomous military vehicle market is the increasing concerns over IED blasts incentivizing government-funded development:

Global autonomous military vehicle market: Increasing concerns over IED blasts incentivizing government-funded development

IEDs are one of the oldest types of weapons used in military warfare. They are employed to inflict grievous physical injuries and damage critical infrastructure. The use of IEDs is highly regulated and necessitate full adherence to international humanitarian law, especially the rules of distinction, proportionality, and precautions in attack. Although the indiscriminate use of IEDs against civilians or civilian objects is strictly prohibited, their unlawful use, particularly by non-state armed groups and rogue individuals, is rapidly rising.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on defense, “Researchers have developed an augmented reality system, which will involve a combination of traditional cameras, thermal infrared sensors, and ground penetrating radar to track and identify potentially dangerous objects from up to 30m away. The augmented reality systems will be deployed on autonomous vehicles, drones, or robots before they are sent into the field. Complementing technologies installed in autonomous vehicles will help ensure that in case if an IED is missed by one scan, it is picked up by another.”
