Partner

Beside the consortium partners Fraunhofer IST, Fraunhofer LBF,  TU Darmstadt/VKM and OSWALD further partners that are involved in the development of the ev-Trailer are the companies FRAMO and SCHWARZMÜLLER.

Objective

In the next three years, there will be developed an autarkic truck trailer including an electrical drive module. The trailer will be equipped with relevant innovative control and regulation technology. The developed demonstrator should collaborate with the tractor without any communication and – apart from many other advantages – the demonstrator should enable fuel savings of the road train up to 25%.
