ROADART :: Overview
The ROADART project aimed for the development of a reliable, automated system for truck-to-truck (T2T) or truck-to-infrastructure (T2I) communication is safety, since a reliable T2TI/T2I communication platform can be used to warn professional drivers for immediate dangers and to provide crucial information for upcoming road conditions. In addition efficient and safe automated platooning systems drastically cut down GreenHouse Gas (GHG) and other pollutant emissions, while simultaneously they reduce the required transportation costs through fuel savings.
The most important and complicated objective of the project was the demonstration of the ROADART platform. In this platform, all the designed diversity techniques, ESPAR antenna concepts and the implemented hardware and software components were integrated on two MAN test trucks in order to demonstrate the performance improvements induced by the ROADART approach.
