Innovations continue –

immediate possibilities!

Right choice of tyresTyre pressure monitoring

Alignment of axlesImproved engine technology

Dynamic route planning Fleet management

& Navigation

Adaptive cruise controlMeasure & control

driving style

Increase loading capacity

Improved

Aerodynamics

(c) International Road Transport Union (IRU) 2013


Allow innovation

Allow Innovation

Weight & Dimensions

Allow for longer and heavier vehicle combinations for:

Improved aerodynamics and safety for the entire vehicle combination – tractor and trailer !

Increased load capacity !

Efficiency gains e.g. through the use of EMS in pan-European operations

  • Reduction in number of trips by 32%

  • Reduction of fuel consumption by 15%

  • Reduction of CO2emission by 15%

    Innovation should be encouraged

    Railways want to stop innovation in road transport – why?

Smart Drivers – train and inform

Improved information

Use dynamic traffic information and route guidance to guide and steer (also EMC) traffic

Better planning

Ensure dynamic and live updates of all situations to ensure full utilisation of infrastructure, including the provision of dynamic parking information and optimised vehicle capacity.

Improved driving style

Encourage Eco-driving training

and incentivise transport operators

to invest in such systems.

(c) International Road Transport Union (IRU) 2013


Clean driving

Clean driving

Intensify work on finding alternatives to oil for HGVs.

Incentivise the use of these alternatives directly for transport operators – e.g. by providing weight exemptions.

Test new concepts and innovate.
