Purpose and goal

Vehicles with a gross weight of 64 - 74 ton is allowed to traffic dedicated roads, called BK4. One criteria that should be fulfilled is that the operation of the vehicles is supported and monitored with an access control system ITK. The purpose of the project has been to develop three prototypes for ITK systems according to the proposed standards and regulations and to test and evaluate these prototypes to verify and fine-tune both the requirements and the regulatory framework

Expected results and effects

In the project, three different approaches to establishing well-functioning ITK systems have been demonstrated on existing test vehicles. The project has shown that it is technically feasible to introduce ITK systems in different ways, and to meet the Performance based standard for ITK. The introduction of an ITK system is expected to have several positive consequences, including better utilization of existing infrastructure, less need for additional investments, less road wear, lower costs, less energy consumption and thus less impact on the climate

Planned approach and implementation

A steering group the project was formed with representatives of all project partners. All partners have reported to the steering group at regular meetings. Volvo, Scania and Vehco chose technology platforms to develop their demonstrations and the development of the pilots has been orgnaised in parallel. Interviews have been conducted by representatives from the Swedish Police and the Transport Agency to map the authorities´ system requirements and needs. The analysis of the legal and institutional framework has been carried out by external experts.

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