Europe's SARTRE (Safe Road Trains for the Environment) project is well underway after its first successful road test. The SARTRE project has created a new technology where vehicles will be able to drive themselves in long road trains on highways -- a practice called platooning.

According to Motor Authority, the SARTRE project's goal is to "improve traffic flow and journey times, offer greater comfort to drivers, reduce accidents, and improve fuel consumption and hence lower CO2 emissions."
