Project: Research project

Description

The project treats the creation of a variable curtain sider trailer prototype for long-distance haulage and a timely limited operation at a carrier for assessment and evaluation of a potential reduction of fuel consumption and operational costs. The new, patented technology enables a variable adjustment of the trailer body geometry and provides required transportation volume at the same time. Project targets contain a verification of simulation results regarding fuel consumption and CO2 emissions reduction, as well as findings from practical use. The gathered data and information represent a basis for further industrial research.
