Zdenek’s Truck hits the streets

Dr. Zdenek Zdrahal, Senior Research Fellow in KMi, has helped design this truck recently exhibited at the IAA Hannover show. The truck cabin was designed by DccS Engineering, Prague for Skoda Liaz Comp.

The design is a spin-off from the Encode project funded by the European Union under the Copernicus programme (420 kECU – Copernicus 940149). By applying the Encode methodology the time needed to design a truck cabin has been decreased from 7-12 months to 2-3 weeks.

The truck was introduced by Skoda Liaz at the IAA Hannover show in September 1996. About the truck project.
