Peloton Technology Inc. was founded in 2011 by a team of Silicon Valley entrepreneurs to address major pain points of today’s trucking fleets – accidents and fuel costs.

Peloton's system uses radar and DSRC vehicle-to-vehicle communications to link active safety systems between pairs of trucks, reducing collision-related expenses and fuel costs. The drivers remain fully engaged and retain steering control, while the system controls acceleration and braking similar to adaptive cruise control. The dramatic reduction in aerodynamic drag in these platoons provides substantial improvements in fuel economy for both the trailing and leading trucks: with on-road testing showing savings of more than 10% for each truck.
