• Leveraging the potential of digitization

    Digital transformation is opening up whole new business opportunities and fields of activity for MAN. Taking commercial vehicle connectivity as our starting point, we are already offering smart services that reduce fuel consumption, increase fleet utilization levels, and reduce the frequency of workshop visits.

  • RIO logistics platform

    RIO is an open, cloud-based, manufacturer-independent platform which integrates the entire transportation and logistics ecosystem. The aim is to make transportation processes more transparent and more efficient, and to improve capacity utilization – cutting costs and at the same time reducing CO₂ emissions. With its digital freightmatching service, for example, RIO is able to ensure better utilization of truck capacity, resulting in fewer empty runs.

  • Connected CoDriver

    The driver still has a major influence on fuel economy. With Connected CoDriver, MAN Truck & Bus offers its customers a system which, for the duration of the training period, pairs drivers with an instructor who acts as a virtual co-driver.

    Driving data – about the vehicle, the style of driving, and the route topography – is supplied to the instructor by the TeleMatics system. The instructor uses this data to provide regular coaching and tips for a more efficient driving style via the hands-free phone system.

  • Platooning

    At the present time, the mandatory minimum following distance between trucks driving on Europe’s highways is 50 meters. In the future, truck platooning could change all this – with benefits both for the environment and for traffic flows.

    MAN is working with its customer DB Schenker to continue developing and improving platooning technology. This is the first time that a logistics company and a vehicle manufacturer have cooperated on the development of connected truck platoons and their testing under real-world conditions.

    The film is only available in German.
