CITY Multi-role Optimized Vehicle (CITY MOVE)
|Coordinator||Statens väg- och transportforskningsinstitut|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 450 000|
|Project duration||January 2010 - December 2012|
Purpose and goal
CITYMOVE aims at developing an innovative integrated vehicle solution fitting with the integrated city transport solution approach for a secure, flexible, reliable, clean, energy efficient and safe road transportation of goods across European cities.
Expected results and effects
CITYMOVE will deliver a vehicle concept for sustainable urban goods transports together with tools for planning and evaluation of ´city logistics´ systems.
Planned approach and implementation
The project is planned along 36 months duration and it is organised into seven work-packages and dedicated tasks. The CITYMOVE work plan is structured into three horizontal activities, namely: -Project management (WP1) -Scientific coordination, integration and quality assurance (WP7) -Dissemination, exploitation and stakeholders involvement (WP6) and four vertical technical WPs (from WP2 to WP5). CITYMOVE starts (WP2) from an accurate investigation of Users Needs which are the basis for further developments in Technical Specification. WP2 is thus the starting point for the development of technical core of CITY MOVE (WP3 and 4) where the consortium will make a significant step beyond the state of art through the new Vehicle Concept Developments. Use cases will be selected under WP5 activities according to their background, data availability, local commitment and geographical location. Then WP5 will evaluate and assess the progress made through real cases applications. Each workpackage is made up of tasks clearly identifying milestones resulting in one or more outcomes (deliverables, reports, tools or other).
