UK lorry platooning trials considered

UK Lorry Platooning Trials Considered

Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne is expected to announce Government funding for trials of lorry platooning on a UK motorway as part of next week s budget. Platooning is the electronic coupling of vehicles to run in close formation. Reports suggest that testing of such a system could begin on a motorway potentially the M6 in Cumbria before the end of the year. A Department for Transport spokesperson said: New technology has the potential to bring major improvements to journeys and the UK is in a unique position to lead the way for the testing of connected and driverless vehicles.

We are planning trials of HGV platoons which enable vehicles to move in a group so they use less fuel and will be in a position to say more in due course.

ITS (UK) secretary general Jennie Martin said: Lorry platooning trials would enable the UK to showcase its advanced capability in connected and autonomous vehicles. This technology look really promising in terms of reducing emissions and noise, improving safety, and contributing to reliable journeys. The Freight Transport Association s head of road network management policy Malcolm Bingham also welcomed the idea of HGV platooning and encourages UK road trials. He explained that the technology could help freight operators save money on fuel and reduce carbon emissions. By moving vehicles closer together it creates a slipstream that they can all benefit from.

However AA president Edmund King has expressed doubts about whether platooning can work in the UK. He said: The UK motorway network is intensively used and has many more junctions than motorways in Europe or indeed the world. Therefore it is very difficult to have a 44t, 10 lorry platoon, because other vehicles need to get past to enter or exit the motorway. He added: If one considers the UK motorway network probably the only feasible place to trial the plans would be the M6, north of Preston towards Scotland, because it tends to have less traffic and there are slightly fewer entrances and exits. RAC chief engineer David Bizley welcomed the principle of platooning but said there were questions to be answered in terms of how the technology can be adopted safely. It is our understanding that there will be drivers in every lorry until the technology is thoroughly proven, which is obviously a condition we would welcome, he said.

But looking further ahead to the point where there is one driver at the front of the train , the responsibility on their shoulders will be far greater and they may themselves need help from driver assistance technology to minimise the risk of error.

York artist donates card sale proceeds to flood victims

A York-based artist, touched by the plight of flooded farmers, has once again chosen to donate the profits from one of her popular greetings cards to benefit the community which supported her in the early days of her career.

York Artist Donates Card Sale Proceeds To Flood VictimsWith an agricultural background stemming from many summers on her grandmother s farm, Yorkshire-born artist, Lauren Terry, has always had a strong bond with animals, especially cows.

They have such strong characters and such an inquisitive nature that they make perfect subjects. I felt art should brighten a room, plus I have a great time gallivanting around in fields getting nice and dirty!

Living in London back in 2011, Lauren found herself longing for a view of the countryside so painted a colourful portrait of a curious Shorthorn to keep her company. From this single painting and sheer good fortune, this one-off piece of art lead to her first exhibition of cow paintings in her home town of Scarborough. The success of this exhibition propelled Lauren into a brand new career as a full-time cow artist under the name of Lauren s Cows[1].

It was in 2014, in response to the floods in the Somerset Levels, that Lauren was driven to paint Nice Weather for Ducks , pictured below. I have regular contact with farmers all across the country through social media says Lauren, aged 26, and after seeing photos posted of farmyards completely submerged in water I quickly realised what a devastating effect these floods were having on our farmers.

Lauren then approached R.A.B.I offering to donate money to help farms affected by this natural disaster through sales of prints and cards of her welly-clad trio. My greatest supporters from the very beginning have been cattle farmers. Their encouragement and enthusiasm gave me the confidence to grow my business, so when I saw their businesses destroyed in a matter of days, doing something to return that support was a no-brainer.

Lauren paints in her York studio with her mother, Jude, taking care of logistics from Appleby-in-Westmorland, Cumbria. Both these areas have been seriously affected by the winter floods of December 2015. When the second set of floods hit I could t believe it! Knowing that we had managed to raise in excess of 1,000 in 2014, it was natural instinct to re-release my soggy cows, who in a time of such distress, never fail to raise a smile.

Lauren has now donated Daisy It s Cold Outside , one of her top-selling Christmas card designs (pictured below), to the R.A.B.I to raise further funds.

Farming is such an important part of our British way of life that it cannot be allowed to fall into decline. Supporting this cause is very close to my heart. R.A.B.I do such good work every single day and I can take great comfort in knowing that the money I raise is going directly to the farming community.

Everyone at R.A.B.I would like thank Lauren and Jude for their continued support. As a charity we have paid over 70,000 to flood victims between since December and these donations are vital to allow us to continue our work.
