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.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
