Multi-Brand platooning in real traffic conditions
Description of call
"Multi-Brand platooning in real traffic conditions"

Multi-Brand platooning (platooning of heavy duty vehicles of different brands and sizes) and automated heavy duty vehicles for long-distance transport are effective technologies to improve the energy efficiency, safety and management of European road traffic. In the past years, there have been significant efforts to develop the required technologies for platooning. However, substantial challenges remain on the path to a Europe wide deployment of platooning, such as platooning with different types of vehicles in real, mixed traffic conditions, better understanding the requirements with regard to logistics, data exchange, sharing of cost savings or the perception and behaviour of other road users in presence of road trains and automated heavy duty vehicles, for instance at motorway exits.
