MODI project will pave the way for the mass adoption of highly automated freight vehicles through demonstrations and by resolving barriers to the rollout of automated transport systems and solutions
MODI will demonstrate automated freight vehicle use cases on the logistics corridor from Rotterdam to Oslo, crossing four national borders and demonstrating terminal operations at four harbours and terminals in route
Automated transport will significantly contribute to improving European transport and logistic chains. The MODI initiative will contribute to make substantial steps toward identifying and resolving barriers preventing this from coming true
MODI accelerates the introduction of highly automated solutions to improve European logistic chains
5 use cases across Europe driven by business challenges.
MODI comprises five use cases, each describing a part of the logistics supply chain. The project will focus on understanding and overcoming the regulatory barriers and infrastructure shortcomings on the motorway corridor for public roads. The confined areas are terminals located in Rotterdam, Hamburg, Gothenburg, and Moss ports. The terminals focus on challenges like access control, charging, coordination with automated guided vehicles, loading/unloading and handover from public to confined areas.
