Reference number 2018-04754
Coordinator Volvo Technology AB - CTO Office
Funding from Vinnova SEK 84 624 592
Project duration December 2018 - November 2021
Status Ongoing

Purpose and goal

This project develops a logistics system for heavy transports that will stimulate a transport system for all types of heavy transports. The technology is demonstrated to evaluate both technical and societal aspects in a global and local perspective. The project will contribute with new knowledge within the area. Several synergy effects and new disruptive transport solutions are realized by a combination of technology areas automation, electromobility and connectivity/digital infrastructure.

Expected results and effects

Create knowledge related to feasibility and what is required by the different actors in the society (authorities, industry and academy). The cooperation contributes to sharing of various parties’ perspective, and create a picture of what this kind of transport means for the future. Additional effects of future transportation solutions will be identified, even beyond the obvious related to sustainability and precision.

Planned approach and implementation

The project will be iterated in a development phase, demonstration phase and analysis phase.
