Main tasks and responsibilities within the project
FPT will participate mainly in WP2: due to its wide experience with commercial vehicles including delivery vans N1 class (produced by IVECO), FPT will be involved from the initial part of the Project in the user characterisation and mobility pattern for commercial vehicles in urban and peri urban areas.
In addition, FPT will contribute in the following activites.
WP4: assessment of interoperability of V2X communication from vehicle perspective
WP9: FPT will follow the development of the demonstration in Turin, evaluating the technical compatibility of the developed solutions with its EV and the potential impact as a stakeholder. Possible deployment of Turing demo site with E-Daily thank to IVECO LTP.
WP10: FPT with IVECO (LTP) as part of CNH group, one of the major OEM for commercial vehicles, will actively participate to the definition of the business case and replication potential of the project’s outcome.
