30th International AVL Conference ‘Engine & Environment’ 2018

7 June, 2018 - 8 June, 2018

Public discussion is currently mainly focused on the subject of pollutant emissions and the long-term future of the combustion engine, but the true automotive revolution is taking place in connecting the vehicle with its environment. The much-cited topic of “autonomous driving” only represents the tip of the iceberg of technical possibilities for rendering the operation of vehicles safe and environmentally friendly. “Advanced Driver Assistance Systems” are increasingly becoming a sales-relevant differentiating factor.

On the one hand, connectivity enables predictive and adaptive management of energy and emissions with advantages regarding energy consumption, emissions, wear and durability thanks to the online monitoring of all relevant system parameters. On the other hand, the subject “Online Vehicle” necessitates stricter requirements being placed on data security and also causes a paradigm shift in the development and validation of vehicles. Connectivity requires a dramatic increase in the extent of the development and validation envelope, such as has occurred in emissions development where “Real Driving Emissions” has led to a shift from exactly defined test bed cycles towards statistical probabilities. This essentially equates to a check under all conceivable operating conditions.

The questions “what does networking make possible, what is meaningful, and how do we control the corresponding risks” pose quite possibly the most intriguing range of topics in automotive development today.
