Platooning is a driving configuration partially or totally autonomous designed to reduce risks of accident, optimize road occupation, and save fuel.

Based on the communication between vehicles composing the platoon, platooning partially rely on GPS/GNSS positioning, and is therefore unavailable underground, when entering a tunnel for instance.

Syntony has been working with major key players of the industry to provide an extension of the GPS Coverage to underground tunnels and enable the development of safe and reliable platooning technology.
