The AEROFLEX project is developing and demonstrating new technologies, concepts, and architectures for complete vehicles with optimized aerodynamics, powertrains, and safety systems as well as flexible and adaptable loading units with advanced interconnectedness contributing to the vision of the physical internet. The AEROFLEX project is liaised with ALICE and the final phase of the project has started. The demonstrators, equipped with all AEROFLEX innovations, are running on the test track at IDIADA and on a public motorway from IDIADA to Fraga.

AEROFLEX is striving to demonstrate efficiency improvements in long haul road freight transport up to 33%. The previous 2 webinars gave you already some insides of the goals and objectives, and you are welcome to listen to the recording of these webinars to bring you up to date, available on ALICE Knowledge Platform.
