Safe corridors, high speed control of long vehicle combinations

It is predicted that longer combinations than those agreed upon in EU directive 96/53 is necessary to reduce the environmental footprint of transported goods. The predicted combinations range typically between 25-35 m in length and containing at least two articulated joints. To assure traffic safety, the objective of this project is to address how driver assistance functionality for high speed control, ranging from 0 to 90 km/h could be realized.
