Flagship Project Connecting Austria

Connecting energy-efficient and goods traffic trucks from the motorway to the city

In three years, four use cases are explored by 13 company and research partners:

  1. Trucks enter the highway and form a platoon;
  2. Truck platoon approaches a hazardous location
  3. Truck platoon leaves the highway
  4. Truck platoon crosses an intersection.

It is planned to have several test ing grounds in Salzburg, Upper Austria and Vienna.

SCCH is a research partner and sees this as an opportunity to apply its expertise in the field of deep learning and in the field of behavioral analytics in use case 4/intersection. This enables SCCH to make a valuable contribution to the safety and efficiency of Platoons.
