AcronymLOADSIZER

Proposal titleVEHICLE LOADING OPTIMISATION SYSTEM

AbstractThe proposed research will improve Road Transport standards by enabling Heavy Goods

Vehicles (HGVs) to be equipped with acurate on-board sensors that will constantlymonitor

loading conditions and reference recorded data against optimised benchmarks. Improved

vehicle control will allow significant safety benefits and long-term economies will accrue

due to operational savings on goods and equipment . The sensors will provide a range of

in-cab displays to facilitate safe and efficient procedures, and operational benefits will

eliminate the possibility of overloading and maximise efficiency. Operators will be able

to ensure that vehicles are loaded to 100% of their designed  'safe-load' parameters to

improve cost-effective operation and avoid censure due to undersized consignments.
