This project aims to enable advanced, digital interaction in real-time between infrastructure/facility and vehicle in order to increase efficiency in intermodal freight transport systems through dynamic access control and guidance. The focus is on stakeholders in intermodal freight transport systems, such as hauliers and terminal operators, that will – with digital technology – achieve new benefits (environmental, security and competitive).
The project is collaboration between academia, industry and society, both larger and smaller organisations, and public authorities. Chalmers University of Technology is the main applicant and Consenso is project leader. Additional members in the consortium are AB Volvo, Scania CV AB, The Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket), FKG – Fordonskomponentgruppen AB, EVRY Forest & Logistics Solutions, Tjörns Bilservice AB and Road Cargo Sweden AB.
The project runs between 2014-09-01—2016-12-31, with a budget of 8,08 MSEK (4,47 MSEK are from FIFFI). The Logistics and transport foundation LTS is co-funding with 0,75 MSEK. The project is mainly funding an industrial PhD student to Licentiate level at Chalmers University of Technology.
