2012 Volvo – SARTRE Road trains, tests with several vehicles in high speed

Volvo Car Corporation part of successful road train test – SARTRE project enters final phase The SARTRE project (Safe Road Trains for the Environment) – with Volvo Car Corporation as the only participating car manufacturer – has successfully completed the first test demonstrations of a multiple vehicle platoon. The test fleet included a lead truck followed by three cars driven entirely autonomously at speeds of up to 90 km/h – with no more than 6 metres gap between the vehicles. “The aim is for the entire road train to be completed in autumn 2012. By then we will have four vehicles after one lead vehicle driving at 90 km/h,” says Erik Coelingh, technical project manager at the Volvo Car Corporation. The SARTRE project is being driven by seven European partners and is the only one of its kind to focus on the development of technology that can be implemented on conventional highways in which platooned traffic operates in a mixed environment with other road users. Stakeholder dialogue Recognizing that the challenge of implementing road train technology on Europe’s highways is not solely a technical matter, SARTRE also includes a major study to identify what infrastructure changes will be needed for vehicle platooning to become a reality. A number of stakeholder discussions will therefore be held. The participants in the first discussion included technical experts, politicians, legislators and traffic safety researchers.

Several law questions.?

Question by Fatefinger: Several law questions.?
I met this former marine where I am working now and we talked about guns and he said a lot of things which I don’t think are true. Both on the federal and state level.

First he said in AZ dragons breath shotgun shells are illegal. Then why can I still buy them? I have found no law on this. I know Illionios, Florida and kalifornistan banned them.

Second he said that in AZ having a side or underfolding stock on ANY rifle is illegal. Again I don’t see anything on this. And I can find AK’s with folding stocks at any gun store.

Third he said in AZ pistol model AR’s and AK’s are illegal.

4th he said firing a weapon from a moving vehicle is illegal under federal law. Even on private land. He said it was “militia training”. All I could find on that anywhere are hunting regulations where you cannot fire at game from a vehicle moving or not.

I think he’s confusing AZ law with kalifornistan law. That or he has no idea what he’s talking about.
