  • Volvo Car Corporation part of successful road train test - SARTRE project enters final phase

      The SARTRE project (Safe Road Trains for the Environment) - with Volvo Car Corporation as the only participating car manufacturer - has successfully completed the first test demonstrations of a multiple vehicle platoon.

    The test fleet included a lead truck followed by three cars driven entirely autonomously at speeds of up to 90 km/h - with no more than a 6 metre gap between the vehicles.

    "The aim is for the entire road train to be completed toward the end of 2012. By then we will have four vehicles following one lead vehicle driving at 90 km/h," says Erik Coelingh, technical project manager at the Volvo Car Corporation.

    The SARTRE project is being driven by seven European partners and is the only one of its kind to focus on the development of technology that can be implemented on conventional highways in which platooned traffic operates in a mixed environment with other road users.
