Poclain Hydraulics Headquarters, Verberie, France 14/09/2011
The CVDC held its September meeting at the headquarters of Poclain Hydraulics, one of the newest members of the Consortium. This was also the first meeting for Tridec, another new member to the consortium.
The University researchers presented their work over the last six months encompassing areas such as whole life pavement modelling, vulnerable road users, advanced ABS and regenerative braking. Future research directions were also discussed, and possible future projects were suggested.
During a break in the proceedings Poclain demonstrated various display vehicles to the members as well as giving a tour of their extensive laboratory facilities.
The full day's proceedings are available to the consortium members via the Members section of the website.
