Project in Focus: AEROFLEX
Further reducing CO2 emissions while increasing road transport efficiency is a challenging objective, especially for commercial vehicles. With this ambition, the EUCAR members DAF Trucks, IVECO, Scania AB, Volvo Group and FIAT Chrysler Automobile, coordinated by MAN Truck and Bus, collaborate in the AEROFLEX project, developing new technologies, concepts and architectures for trucks. These vehicle demonstrators have optimised aerodynamics, powertrains and safety systems to decrease CO2 emissions while improving road transport efficiency and safety. Flexible and adaptable loading units with advanced connectivity will further increase the overall efficiency of logistics systems. AEROFLEX is now integrating all project innovations on demonstrator vehicles for testing on test track and public motorway.
An overview of the results will be presented in a webinar on 24 March 2021. In this event, AEROFLEX partners will discuss the achievements and implementation opportunities beyond the project. This event is planned as an interactive online session, allowing participants to actively discuss the results and activities beyond the project with AEROFLEX partners.
