LIFE ECOTRAVID Project – Samat Group Testimony

31 March 2022

LIFE ECOTRAVID is a pioneering algorithmic tool designed to enhance haulier fleet management. It serves to: reduce fuel consumption, save money, and preserve the environment. The LIFE ECOTRAVID project is led by CLS, the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics and the Samat Aquitaine group.

The Samat group has been partner and signatory to the ADEME ecological transition charter since 2011. It has set itself a target of reducing its entire fleet’s fuel consumption by 1% per year.

Fitted sensors enable the trucks to be geolocated. Routes are then calculated, taking into account multiple factors such as road topography, traffic and the weather. The route selected by the fleet manager is then sent to the driver’s smartphone for GPS satellite navigation. It’s simplicity and state of the art, all in one!

A first series of tests is currently being conducted on 20 trucks and 20 trailers operated by Samat, in order to demonstrate the efficacy of this groundbreaking tool.
