Abstract:
    Fuel consumption is critical in context of CPEC. Truck Platooning is proven to increase fuel efficiency by 14%. We plan to implement truck platooning through easily install-able low-cost hardware.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Fuel is crucial but it's efficient utilization has in transportation has not been thought of, yet. We help transporters increase margin my realizing this idea.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   CPEC transporters. Fuel efficiency is critical for transportation over that scale and can
How will the solution works
    Truck Platooning is being achieved through a Distributive Automatic Control System. Distances are detected and sensed by low-cost depth cameras. Maintaining speed through a local feedback control and a global distributive control system.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    The idea has already been adopted by international truck manufacturing companies. But their trucks are more than 500% the cost of ours and solutions cannot be installed in other vehicles.
