Automated trafficability analysis TruckTrix®

Reliable trafficability analysis

The efficiency of road haulage is of essential importance for the economy. Heavy haulages are a special case in transport, as they exceed permissible maximums regarding dimensions and axle loads. Because the existing transport infrastructure was not designed to fit heavy haulages, routes have to be carefully planned and officially approved by authorities in advance.

In recent years, the Fraunhofer IVI developed a software facilitating the planning of heavy haulages. It includes the calculation algorithm TruckTrix®, which is for the first time capable of evaluating automatically the trafficability of a route, i. e. if critical narrows can be passed with a specific combination of vehicle and load.
