Final Conference on 29th June 2017 at VOLVO

The TRANSFORMERS consortium is pleased to invite you to the TRANSFORMERS Final Conference.
The consortium have developed and demonstrated two innovative semi-trailers:
  • an energy efficiency (HoD) trailer
  • a load optimisation trailer
The innovations on the energy efficiency trailer include a trailer mounted, “Hybrid on Demand” electric driveline, and various innovative measures to optimise the aerodynamics of the complete vehicle.
The load optimisation trailer includes innovative solutions to increase the loading efficiency, and also includes innovative aerodynamic improvements.
Since summer 2016 the TRANSFORMERS vehicles have been seen on roads across Europe, and at the Final Conference, we are proud to explain the innovations, the results that we have achieved, and our vision for the future.
