Maneuvering Aids

Low Speed Maneuvering Aids For Long Vehicle Combinations


The trend in Europe is for increasing the maximum length of vehicles to 25.25 meters.The aim of this thesis is to study the problems relating to low speed maneuvering of long vehicle combinations and to develop concepts that aid the driver in areas of safety, efficiency and ergonomics.

Ten basic needs and problem areas are identified during maneuvering. Concepts are developed and subsequently evaluated in relation to these needs by interviews,
need‐weave matrix and by driving simulator. This results in five concepts that will undergo patent evaluation and several concepts that will be further developed by Volvo 3P.
