Performance Based Standards II
|Coordinator||Statens väg- och transportforskningsinstitut - Statens väg- och transportforskingsinstitut|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 5 140 000|
|Project duration||August 2018 - September 2021|
Purpose and goal
The purpose of the PBS II project is to complete development of a PBS scheme for HCT vehicles in Sweden and to support its implementation.
Expected results and effects
The project will develop Swedish competence within the scope of HCT vehicles and will result in more efficient and environmentally friendly transport system without jeopardizing the traffic safety. Project outcomes will be: Standard tire models for assessment of HCT vehicles performance PBS regulatory framework for HCT vehicles Demonstrators for computational assessment of HCT vehicles with respect to the developed PBS scheme ISO standards, journal articles, conference papers and public reports
Planned approach and implementation
The project will be performed within 7 work packages, through 2 years, starting August 2018. During the project, tire measurements on test rig and test track will be performed to develop standard tire models. Further, experiments with heavy vehicles will be conducted to study characteristics of different tires and its effects on the performance of heavy vehicles. These experiments will be complemented by extensive simulations. There will be collaboration and exchange of knowledge with Nordic and international actors and ISO organization.
