Chapter
Emerging technologies may trigger rethinking existing business models, clearly highlighting economic benefits and analysing effects on innovation systems. Truck platooning as one emerging technology in the area of road freight transport promises to improve efficiency and safety and requires different stakeholders (e.g. road operators, freight forwa...
Chapter
In 2017, the core team of the Connecting Austria project faced the challenge of leveraging previous research results on cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) into the logistics domain—namely into the domain of truck platooning. Quite a lot of ideas and topics were evaluated, potential research partners explored, and funding opportunitie...

Truck platooning represents a promising means to enhance efficiency of freight transport. Developments of truck platooning date back to the early 1990s, starting with projects to illustrate the technical feasibility followed by projects investigating the potential of fuel savings up to feasible business models and multi-brand and multi-fleet platoo...
Chapter
Road damage on highways and freeways lead to numerous construction sites and maintenance activities every year, causing congestion, increased environmental pollution and costs. In addition, road damage exposes road users to an increased risk of accidents. The EU project ESRIUM aims to help reducing both the number of road works and the associated p...

Low automation-level truck platooning is a first commercial C-ITS use case. Benefits like fuel consumption reduction, efficiency improvements and safety increases are promising. However, NRAs concerns whether exact lateral track following will lead to increased pavement rutting need investigations. This study sets out to analyze the counter effects...
Conference Paper
The validation of automated, connected driving is a complex issue. A lot of intrinsic conflicts will make it difficult to fulfill and prove all expected and promised benefits and advantages for automated driving. Hence sophisticated methods and procedures are necessary for the safe and effective implementation of traffic automation. Scenario, data...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Enhancing the efficiency of freight transport is one key question of logistics companies and has been a rather challenging task due to steadily increasing volumes of goods based on e-commerce and e.g. Amazon's same-day delivery services 1. One approach for setting-up a smart and sustainable logistics system is using some form of truck platooning co...
Chapter
Full-text available
Rather different views on the state of the art in truck platooning have seen some significant public activity earlier in 2019. Is it that complex to achieve real world bottom line fuel savings on public highways or public roads? What role do users – truck drivers – play when it comes to truck platooning acceptance? Acceptance issues are vital for s...

As stated in the ITF Call 2019 for Extended Abstracts, the role of connectivity is essential for global value chains and logistics will be key for maintaining sustainable transport solutions. Connectivity and sustainability are two essential aspects of truck platooning, one of the first close-to-market applications for semi-automated freight transp...

(Semi-)automated truck convoys have the potential of generating substantial reductions in energy use and emissions. Here we outline how infrastructure-based management (I2V) adds significant momentum. We present some of the rationale from our recently started national lighthouse demonstration project, link our project design to other ongoing truck-...
Conference Paper
Traffic automation and automated driving is expected to bringing major advantages for traffic with respect to comfort, safety, efficiency, and effectiveness. In fact, all these benefits are conflicting aims. Therefore, some advanced development approaches for balancing the features and coping with trade-offs are necessary. One cornerstone for this...

How do we overcome governments' difficulty in quickly implementing C-ITS? How can Technology Readiness Level (TRL) and Market Readiness Level (MRL) contribute to overcoming this gap? C-ITS deployment in Europe has seen significant hesitation from several actors. Some reasons are related to unresolved risks & the chicken and egg issue of who deliver...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
A joint effort in cross-industry research and development has brought significant achievements in the field of connected driving. In this paper we evaluate recent achievements in connected driving and outline next-level challenges in bringing connected driving and automated driving to metropolitan areas. Based upon our lessons learnt and our assess...

This paper responds to the explicit question "We need a new, 'smarter', approach to address the C-ITS deployment challenges." In 2014 the Austrian Ministry of Transport, Innovation, and Technology selected the authors of this paper with their new urban mobility C-ITS focussed living lab addressing this question. In Bordeaux we will share what we ha...

The cross-border region between Bratislava and Vienna is one of the fastest growing regions in Europe – especially concerning the high-tech industry (www.contor-analyse.de). One success factor of commercially effective high-tech start-up companies is the early identification of user requirements and selling arguments. The basis for commercial innov...

How can targeting co-operative I2V services to the so called climate-conscious urban mobility avant-garde contribute to broadening the co-operative systems user base? Service idea is to support drivers in their practice of greener decision making in those cases where they feel they need to ride a car. By driving individualization of cooperative ser...

Project
The project EVIS.AT has the ambitious goal to provide level of service, travel times and event messages in a unified and high quality way for the Austrian main road network until the year 2020. This goal is planned to be achieved within the framework of the following four main focus areas: planned events unplanned events current level of service future level of service (prognosis) This harmonized travel information with its high quality willbe included in services such as the Traffic Information Austria (VAO) in order to be provided to all end users for free. But also traffic administration partners and road operators benefit from EVIS.AT within their day-to-day work so that traffic itselfbecomes safer, more efficient and environmentally friendly.
