The main objective for the GOFER project is to contribute to a reduction in emissions, queues, accidents and operator costs related to heavy freight, by introducing new technical solutions and ways of cooperation. The GOFER project idea is to develop concepts which facilitate control and management of heavy freight vehicles, much the same way as the air control manages airplanes approaching or leaving an airport.

Demonstration activities

After a study of user needs and requirements in the early phase of the project, the last phase of the project is dedicated to three separate demonstration activities:

• Live demonstration on the 500 km route from Oslo to Trondheim
• Heavy vehicle driving simulator, study of measures prioritizing heavy vehicles
• Simulation model for access to the Alnabru terminal area in Oslo

Video from the live-demonstration

This video gives a summary of the live demonstration which was running from mid November 2011, through January 2012.

Video from the study in the heavy vehicle driving simulator

This video gives a summary of the trials in the heavy vehicle driving simulator which were carried out in January 2012. The objective of the trials was to study effects of giving heavy vehicles priority through access to public transport lanes and green wave in light signals.
