Purpose and goal

Increase the research and innovation capacity in Sweden through research on coordinated platooning and how functional safety should be applied to cooperative systems, while promoting the cooperation between industry, universities and institutes. Areas which are most applicable in the EUTS program are Automation and Connected Services: - Pilot test, will be carried out at Schenker in real life conditions. - Business model and standards for platooning. - Coordination of vehicles to form platoons. - Development of control algorithms for vehicle control and safe communication.

Expected results and effects

- Create a standardized platooning application to facilitate interoperability between different brands - Build knowledge on the needs and economic values for different platooning related services such as mechanisms for the formation of a platoon and on how to select business model for a platooning application - Perform a platooning pilot study (longitudinal control) together with haulage company - Demonstration of dual brand platooning (both lateral and longitudinal control of trucks) - Development of functional safety concept - 1 PhD dissertation - 1 licentiate thesis
