Application Tested and Further Developed in Practice with Industry Partners
An implementation of the VMC® concept for application in the truck industry has been supported several years ago by a joint project with the truck manufacturers DAF-Trucks, Daimler, MAN Nutzfahrzeuge, SCANIA, and Volvo Trucks.
An early application of that technology was, among others, executed in a common project with Volkswagen Nutzfahrzeuge and reported during the VDI conference Commercial Vehicles 2015 in Eindhoven. In this case, the planning of the campaign and the derivation of usage parameters was supported by VMC® GeoStatistics, the measured data were evaluated using VMC® GeoLDA and extrapolated to load distributions using U·Sim.
Because of the rapidly growing availability of potentially relevant data (e.g., traffic) and because of upcoming new requirements with respect to specific applications (e.g., E-mobility), we are continuously developing and extending the database as well as the collection of methods.
