Aero Semi
 
Freightliner Trucks

"Building on the highly successful Cascadia platform, the Innovation Truck reflects greater refinement in aerodynamics with the addition of rear wheel fairings to smooth the airflow around the rear wheels, under body panels that smooth air flow under the chassis, a roof deflector to direct air over the trailer, and a front air splitter incorporated into the front bumper to pass air around the truck. "


See that? They are coping us. I don't think their parts are made of coroplast though.

It looks like it has a GPS cruise control system :

Mechatronic Systems
Mechatronics integrates the electronic and mechanical worlds into systems that help to improve vehicle function and driver interaction.

One such system is the RunSmart Predictive Cruise system. A world premiere for heavy-duty trucking industry, this system offers significant fuel savings by combining the latest in GPS technology with digital mapping to provide a 3D profile of the road ahead. The truck evaluates the upcoming road profile more than one mile in advance and determines the most fuel efficient vehicle speed.

“The RunSmart Predictive Cruise system showcases our commitment to shape the future of transportation,” said Boeckenhoff. “And with Freightliner, the future starts right now.”

Talk about "driving the road ahead",
