About the project

The project is a part of the course TSRT10, given at Linköpings University during the fall of 2013, and a co-operation between Linköpings University, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Scania AB regarding platooning.

During the project a system that is needed for platooning is created. Platooning has the advantage of reducing fuel consumption while driving heavy duty vehicles due to the reduction in air drag, which originates from driving the vehicles close to each other. The advantages of platooning are therefore both economical and environmental.
