- NXP and DAF Trucks will showcase truck platooning in the city of Munich with the inclusion of intelligent traffic lights (Siemens) that automatically adapt traffic signaling based on the truck convoy's location, thus significantly improving the traffic flow.
- Ricardo, TNO, NXP and DAF Trucks, members of the EcoTwin Truck Platooning Project, are in the research phase aiming to reduce the distance between platooning trucks by another 40 percent in 2017.
- Platooning promises to increase fuel efficiency up to 10 percent, improve road safety and reduce exhaust emissions like CO 2, PM and NO x.
- Together with Honda, Siemens, Marben, Cohda Wireless and Chemtronics, other live demonstrations in Munich will include secure V2X use cases, such as the detection/warning of motorcycles for improved safety. An autonomous car built by the University of Eindhoven using NXP sensor fusion will also be at the event.
