Little switches on the shifter (actually probably in the trans), it can see where you're going before you engage the gear.

As for double clutching, I have occasionally found use of it when not driving big rigs (I never drive big rigs).

When driving a manual truck, double clutching = happy(ier) shift time - to the point of it feeling like magic, no waiting for the synchros to get the job done if you do it yourself. If you have a trans with weak synchros and you plan your shifts (like you might at a track), you can avoid grinding noises by double clutching.
If it's really really cold and you don't have redline in your 260, you can double clutch until it warms up enough to stop crying.
