About

The CoAct program consists of a number of projects in the area of cooperative traffic systems and platooning. The purpose is for all projects to interact to create synergies to keep a leading edge for swedish automotive industry in the area of cooperative systems.

Cooperative systems are essential in order to reach vision zero. Few passive or active safety systems are available for unprotected road users. To improve their safety, cooperation and communication between the unprotected road users, vehicles and infrastructure is necessary.

Partners and sponsors in the CoAct program are Volvo Cars, Volvo AB, Scania and the technical universities of Linköping, KTH, Chalmers and Halmstad.

A win-win situation is at hand when the universities can offer challenging courses as a part of their programs and the industry is eager to have qualified emplyees in the area of cooperative systems and V2V communication. Almost all students participating in the GCDC 2011 were recruited by the auto manufacturing industry and the suppliers.
