Aerodynamic and Flexible Trucks for Next Generation of Long Distance Road Transport

Deliverables

Test program and protocol

A report describing the definition of a new test procedure able to measure accurately the gain of energy efficiency and energy consumption thanks to the new vehicle features

Definition of use cases

A report describing the defined use-cases involving the combinations of developed technologies from WP2-WP5 composed of combinations of different developed Tractor/Truck + Dolly + Trailer

Definition of the boundary conditions and current state of EU legislation

A report describing the detailed description of the baseline situation of regulation and provide a good starting input to the rest of the technical WPs in terms of regulations and standards.

Book of Requirements AEMPT and KPIs

The vehicle portfolio and respective use cases will be analysed and be included into the Book of Requirements. KPIs will be defined to measure the improvement of the newly developed energy management systems.

Transport market and its drivers with respect to new vehicle concepts (Task 1.1)

A report describing transport market in Europe (e.g. transport chains, intermodal transport), deciscion factors for the choice of transport modes and vehicle types as well as relevant trends in logistics and technology and its effects in terms of vehicle utilization.

Assessment framework

A report describing the definition of the assessment matrix and the development of the framework to perform the final technical assessment of the different technologies in the context of different vehicle combinations, against clearly defined KPIs

Project Website

The launch of a public project website, accessible for the general public. A very short report will be uploaded with some key elements of the website.
