CTI systems for timber transport in Germany

The project partners optimise driving conditions for trucks in the field of timber transport. Using a "central tyre inflation" (CIT) system, the inflation pressure of the tyres can be adapted to the properties of the ground which allows substantial savings, particularly in terms of fuel consumption. The results further highlight improvements in work safety and a drop in road damage.
