When will we see some sort of convoy drafting technolgy used with OTR trailers. I would think it would be fairly simple to have such a system that used cameras and maybe sonar to allow rigs on the highway to draft extremely closely. Ideally you would want sleek nosed rigs as leads and flat nosed ones like old cabover style.

Such a system would actually increase safety as it would require only one attentive driver per convoy.
