Assuming you are in the trucking industry since you are reading this blog post, you likely have seen tons of articles and commentary on truck platooning, self-driving trucks and autonomous trucks. It often seems like these terms are used interchangeably, but there are quite big differences.

We cover a lot of information, but we focus on these questions:
- What is truck platooning?
- What is the difference between truck platooning and autonomous trucks?
- What are the 5 levels of autonomous trucks?
- How will truck platooning and autonomous trucks impact professional drivers?
