Brilliant Swedish results in the Grand Cooperative Driving Contest 2011

Brilliant Swedish results in the Grand Cooperative Driving Contest 2011

SAFER teams managed the (almost) impossible in international competitions in the cooperative driving (GCDC) in Helmond over the weekend.

11 teams from nine countries had signed up to 9 of them came to the start line on Saturday.

After about six months of preparation and hard work were three Swedish teams stand in the race.

The Swedish investments exceeded expectations – not least because of the short time given for preparation, with a 6 month project time from project start to the race.

The German AnnieWAY won with very narrow margin over Team Halmstad Halmstad University, where the team consists of Technology candidates under the direction of Christopher Lidstrom (PhD student). The team managed to capture a 2nd place.

Dessutom knep Team Chalmers en 3:e plats och Team Scoop från KTH en hedervärd 4:e plats. Man lyckades därmed med en lastbil slå 5 lag trots tuffa odds.

Därmed har Sverige placerat sig på den absoulta toppen vad gäller kooperativ körning och redan nu pågår planering för kommande tävlingar inom området.

CoACT projektet är ett SAFER projekt, finansierat av IVSS programmet och som koordineras av Viktoriainstitutet.
