Transport - HDV
Delivering increased real world fuel efficiency
What we are doing
Lower Drivetrain Parasitic Losses Reduction
A project seeking to cut the amount of parasitic losses in HDV lower drivetrain systems by 50%.
High Efficiency Selective Catalytic Reduction
A project developing a more efficient exhaust emission clean up system with new urea injector design.
Land Vehicle Systems Integration
A project focusing on concept engineering of innovative and efficient land vehicles.
Efficiency Focus Area
A desk top study to investigate efficiency and reducing emissions of HDVs.
Waste Heat Driven Air Conditioning System
A project to develop a tailored thermal heat-pump component to be integrated in Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning Systems in HDV’s.
Smart Tyre Pressure Optimisation System
This project aims to develop and demonstrate a commercially viable automated system that will realise potential fuel savings of up to 8% across the UK HDV land fleet by 2020.
Land Based HDV Demonstration Vehicle
Caterpillar are to build a new 25 tonne off-road quarry truck in Peterlee to test new technologies developed in the ETI’s HDV efficiency programme
Continuous Variable Transmission
Caterpillar to develop two new component technologies - a new gearbox design and engine air charging systems for HDVs.
Marine Vessel Systems Integration
This project has completed the creation and integration of a full-scale shipping model that is focused on the activity of and the vessels involved in the UK’s sea-based transportation needs.
Data Analysis Optimisation
An eight month project, which will analyse data on heavy duty vehicle operations to help inform technologies currently under development by the ETI.
On-Highway Market Analysis Project
The aim of this project is to provide an improved understanding of the current activities and trends currently occurring in the On-Highway Heavy Duty Vehicle arena.
