IMPERIUM project closing meeting

The closing meeting to share achievements of the project IMPERIUM supported by the European Union, was be held in Turin, Italy on 2nd and 3rd July 2019 at CNH Industrial Village.

Fuel economy is a key aspect to reduce operating costs and improve efficiency of freight traffic, thus increasing truck competitiveness. The project partners provided their input and results with respect to the main objective to achieve fuel consumption reduction of up to 20% (diesel and urea) whilst keeping the vehicle within the legal limits for pollutant emissions.

The IMPERIUM consortium, consisting of the major European actors, represents those responsible for manufacturing 45% of the heavy duty vehicles manufactured in the EU.

Jointly an improved technical basis for vehicle and powertrain controls was set up and new validation methods were developed. The project is strengthening the research cooperation between academia, suppliers, Engineering Service Providers and OEMs.

The reduction of fuel consumption with a total target of 20% compared to MY2014 is reached by a combination of new and partners background R&T.

As project contributions mainly focus on control and software, the implementation on European roads by the transfer of technology to production vehicles can be implemented within the next vehicle generations.
