The webinar entitled “Challenges facing predictive Powertrain technologies” was organised by the optiTruck project, aming at introducing examples of innovative powertrain technologies currently under development for reducing fuel consumption and discussing about challenges in order to define common issues faced by predictive powertrain technologies in general.

These common issues will then be addressed during a stakeholder forum meeting that will take place on 17 September 2018 at the beginning of the ITS World Congress in Copenhagen (to be confirmed).

Three of these activities are funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 research programme and one is funded in the USA under the NEXTCAR research programme.
