Götting KG has already automated several trucks; at the Cebit in Hannover, Germany, they showed off their latest innovation: a tow-bar that makes it possible for a single-driver to steer an entire convoy of trucks.

The electronic tow-bar project was shown at the Cebit exhibition last week with a Smart car pulling a tractor at a speed of 6km/h. At the end of 2009, they'll test a speed of 30-80km/h with real lorries.
