KPI-2

End User Requirements and Key Performance Indicators
Deliverable D1.1 focused on identifying the requirements from the end users of road freight services and the stakeholders who own and operate trucks and (semi)trailers

Hybrid_on_demand_driveline

Hybrid-on-demand driveline
The trucks/tractors are equipped with a state-of-the-art mechanical driveline including a combustion engine and a gearbox.

Loading_Efficiency_toolbox

Loading efficiency measures
TRANSFORMERS shall investigate the potential of various loading efficiency options for long distance transport of euro-sized pallets and bulk cargo within current  legal framework.

Aerodynamic_design_toolbox

Aerodynamic measures
TRANSFORMERS shall investigate the potential of various combinations by CFD-simulation. The
result will be a toolbox of intelligent, optimized aerodynamic devices for trucks and (semi)trailers.

Hybrid_on_demand_framework

Hybrid-on-demand Framework
The Hybrid-on-Demand (HoD) driveline concept should not only be applicable to virtually any kind of truck-trailer vehicle but needs an industrial standard as well.
