Connecting Austria – international Exchange  

The flagship project Connecting Austria (bmvit/Innovation) researches on semi-automated and energy-efficient truck platoons with specific focus on infrastructure and overall traffic issues. What is needed to safely and efficiently set up an energy-efficient platoon, to maintain a platoon, and to go back to a regular transport mode at Austrian roads? Key objective is evidence-based evaluation of energy-efficient and semi-automated truck platoons. 

Hitec goes international and validates first Connecting Austria results:
