Applus IDIADAs partnership at the COMPANION project

COMPANION is an EC-funded research project aimed at the development of a real-time coordination system to dynamically create, maintain and dissolve platoons of heavy-duty vehicles
COMPANION is a three-year European research project aiming at identifying means of applying the platooning concept in practice in daily transport operations.
The proposed approach is to define a real-time coordination system to dynamically create, maintain and dissolve platoons, according to a decision-making mechanism, taking into account information about the infrastructure.
The starting point for the main use scenario is a set of trucks, each equipped with a designated truck driver, and tasked with a transport assignment. The assignment, specified in terms of time constraints and locations for pick-up and delivery of goods, should be transported to a consignee at the request of a consignor. The trucks may belong to the same or different carriers.
With Applus IDIADA as partners, the aim is to test the system in its entirety on Spanish roads during autumn 2016.
COMPANION members:
- Coordinator: SCANIA
- Partners: Volkswagen AG, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Science [&] Technology Corporation, OFFIS Institute für Informatik, Cerezuela Transport and Applus IDIADA
