The IMPERIUM consortium represents a unique mix of industry leading expertise and knowledge centres that enable the consortium to respond completely to the project challenges and objectives. The consortium is composed of three major manufacturers of heavy duty trucks DAF Trucks N.V, IVECO S.p.A.and Volvo Technology AB (OEM), eight major high end and large component and engineering service suppliers (FPT Motorenforschung AG, AVL List GmbH, Ricardo UK Ltd, Continental Automotive GmbH, FEV GmbH, Robert Bosch GmbH, and Honeywell SPOL. S.R.O).
This composition is complemented by six research and service centres in specialised simulations (Chalmers University, Politecnico di Torino, Politecnico di Milano, CTU Prague, RWTH Aachen University, Technical University Eindhoven), and a powerful group of global leaders in physical, chemical and thermodynamic sciences with vast experience in engine and vehicle research. With this partner setting the IMPERIUM consortium provides the necessary critical mass, skills and commitment to ensure not only the achievement of future alternative powertrains and components for heavy duty vehicles but also the results’ market uptake towards higher Technology Readiness Levels.
