HCT and ERS in Sweden

In this paper we describe which steps and measures we are taking to be able to introduce high capacity transport (HCT) in Sweden. We will describe how we in Sweden manage and collaborate on the issue of HCT-cooperation between industrial groups, agencies, academia and government. Which projects we have started and results from some completed projects. We describe the results from two assignments that we got from the Swedish government both about having HCT introduced at Swedish road network. This together have placed Sweden in the front of HCT research in Europe. We will also briefly describe the process of developing and funding two demonstrators of ERS (electric road systems). The project is (what we know) one of the biggest pre commercial procurement carried out in Europe. It has engaged the Swedish heavy truck industry as well as providers of electrical road systems and other public authorities in Sweden.
