Project in Focus: MODI


The MODI Project (a leap towards SAE L4 automated driving features) aims to push the boundaries of automated driving capabilities for the transport of goods. Co-funded by European Union, MODI explores the improvements that connected, cooperative and automated mobility (CCAM) brings to the logistic sector.

In MODI, leading European heavy-duty vehicle manufacturers (notably DAF Trucks and Volvo Group), ITS solutions providers, test centres, logistic companies, road authorities and cities/regions collaborate along the corridor from Rotterdam to Oslo. The project will identify and address barriers for automated vehicles (no requirement for human interaction in their operations) in confined areas and on public roads. The different automated vehicle solutions will be demonstrated in this corridor. MODI includes five different use cases, each describing a part of the logistic chain. In addition, the project will also analyse business models to, demonstrate the benefits that CCAM technologies can bring to logistic companies.
