Project in Focus: ENSEMBLE

The ENSEMBLE project is paving the way for the adoption of multi-brand truck platooning in Europe. This ambitious objective will help improving fuel economy, CO2 emissions, traffic safety and efficiency throughout the road freight sector. To achieve its objective, ENSEMBLE is increasing safe platooning when using different branded  trucks  and carrying out impact assessment for infrastructure, safety and traffic flow. Traffic and road authorities have been approached to jointly define road approval requirements. Platoon Operation Levels were defined to guide the design of different platooning functionalities and strategies, reflecting the full diversity of trucks  with platooning...
