Ricardo to lead Powertrain workstream at industry Executive Day
BIRMINGHAM, United Kingdom, Oct. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Automotive Electronic Systems Innovation Network (AESIN) has announced it will officially launch its new Powertrain workstream led by Ricardo at its popular two-day conference on Oct 28th and 29th at the National Motorcycle Museum, Solihull, UK.
The new Powertrain workstream will focus on the "more electric" elements of future Powertrain systems ranging from Component level to Architecture and System integration challenges.
Led by Ricardo, this new workstream will align with the strategy of the UK Automotive Council and Electronic Systems Council. It will also engage PowerElectronicsUK and is intended to help make connections between companies and researchers looking to work together in a collaborative and non-competitive manner on next generation powertrain systems. A critical aspect is to bring coherence across this area to help inform the Advanced Propulsion Centre, EPSRC and InnovateUK of the common challenges identified by industry and academia in order to inform those decision-makers on priorities for future public investment.
Initial plans for the workstream will be announced at the AESIN 2015 conference which will bring together leading industry professionals and stakeholders to accelerate developments enabled by electronic systems in the automotive domain. The first day of the conference is an Executive Day which will provide a briefing update on key UK programmes. The second day will include a dedicated "Advanced Propulsion" session as part of the technology-themed programme looking at the developments that enable future automotive systems. Key themes will include:
- Connected Car
- Automotive Security
- Advanced Propulsion
- ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems)
Conference director Paul Jarvie commented: "This is an exciting time for Automotive Electronics with growing opportunities for collaborative developments across the supply chain to deliver the underpinning technology of tomorrow's car. By bringing together the best of technology and research capability we can tackle the challenges such as Security and System design and verification required to deliver safe and connected vehicles. AESIN is delighted to provide an opportunity for sharing and progressing both critical business support and technology understanding for the UK Automotive Industry".
