Final Report - HEAVYROUTE (Intelligent Route Guidance of Heavy Vehicles)

Project ID: 31461
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

This is the final report of the HEAVY ROUTE project. The aim was to develop a first prototype of an advanced route guidance and driver support system for heavy good vehicles (HGVs), based on the improvement in the generation and usage of digital maps, as a tool for deriving the safest and the most cost effective routes for road freight transports.

The report begins with an introduction on current situation concerning HGV usage in Europe and then states the project's objectives and how they were addressed through individual applications planned. The document later goes into detail about the data collection, database structure and modelling needed for the simulation runs and then explains how the experiments both in simulation mode and field applications were conducted. Conclusions follow and finally the report ends up with information on dissemination activities and a list of deliverables.
