Purpose and goal
The purpose of the project is to meet a future with efficient transport systems that actually automatically configure themselves optimally. Thus, a part step is that they can auto-connect and disassociate automatically. Thus, the carriage regulation of the units needs to go through different modes such as master and slave.
Expected results and effects
** Denna text är maskinöversatt ** Volvo has gained insight and also conceptual ideas built. Volvo has also started long-term research to meet the goals of 2030 for efficient road transport. The project has already resulted in some key patent submissions.
Planned approach and implementation
** Denna text är maskinöversatt ** Conceptual ideas have been balanced against industrialization and academic optimization of the carriage itself. Industrialization depends a lot on whether the results of the research can be standardized later.
