What is the optimum length of a convoy of self-driving trucks and the distance between the trucks?

A convoy will comprise at least two but no more than three trucks. The optimum length of a convoy has to be investigated. Of course, account will be taken of other road users wanting to change lanes.

Legal obligatory distance between vehicles

The obligatory distance between vehicles differs from country to country. In the Netherlands it is written in the law as a ‘safe distance’, but in other countries the distance is '50 metres' or ‘2 seconds’.
