MELBOURNE, Australia

The results of CVDC-funded and other affiliated work was presented in March at the 11th Heavy Vehicle Transport Technology (HVTT) symposium in Melbourne, Victoria. Professor David Cebon and Will Goodrum presented results from work on the actively-steered B-double project, advanced pneumatics for heavy-vehicle braking, improving the energy efficiency of heavy vehicles, and a new method of modelling traffic for pavement damage calculations, to a cross-disciplinary audience of international experts. The theme of HVTT 11 was "balancing competing needs"; a task well understood and highlighted by the breadth of work and expertise of the members of the CVDC. Of primary concern for all attendees at HVTT 11 was seeing greater community engagement, environmental stewardship, and technological innovation by the heavy vehicle sector in the future. HVTT 11 was held in the State Library of Victoria from 14-16 March and was attended by 150 representatives from heavy vehicle companies, road transport authorities, and academia from around the world.

More information on HVTT 11 can be found on the conference website.
