Project in Focus: AEROFLEX final event

On 28 September 2021, the AEROFLEX project held its final event at the ZF Test Track in Jeversen, Germany. With this event, the project consortium concluded their work over more than three years, developing and successfully demonstrating new technologies, concepts, and architectures for future heavy good vehicles (HGV).

In AEROFLEX, the partners optimised aerodynamics, powertrains and safety systems to reduce the carbon footprint while improving road transport efficiency and safety. Flexible and adaptable loading units, using connectivity, will further increase the overall logistic efficiency. The consortium members showed all innovations and project results from AEROFLEX with presentations and live demonstrations on the test track.
