    Abstract : Traffic congestion is increasing in almost all large cities, leading to a number of negative effects such as pollution and delays. However, building new roads is not a feasible solution. Instead, the use of the existing road network has to be optimized, together with a shift towards more sustainable transport modes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Fuel-Efficient Heavy-Duty Vehicle Platooning

    Author : Assad Alam; Karl H. Johansson; Roberto Horowitz; KTH; []
