UD Trucks participating in METI and MLIT platooning trials
UD Trucks joined with other Japanese truck makers in platooning trials led by the Ministry for Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Tourism (MLIT). In the trials, the CACC (Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control) system jointly developed by the four companies was fitted to general purpose trucks platooning on expressways. UD Trucks used the all-new heavy-duty Quon truck for these trials.
