Development and Examination of the application of electronically coupled truck convoys on highways

01.09.2005 - 01.11.2009

The German national project KONVOI focused from 2005 to 2009 on the topic platoons of heavy trucks, in which vehicles follow a lead truck fully automatically with small gaps to improve aerodynamics. At the same time the small gaps and a digital transmission of driving parameter via V2V communication enable a reduction of needed road area and an improvement of traffic flow. The project KONVOI studied the impact (driver acceptance, traffic flow and environment) as well as the legal and economic implication of platoons.
