ABSTRACT

The automotive industry is experiencing a radical transformation and new trends are increasingly emerging in the fields of propulsion systems as well as vehicle architecture and functions. Hybridization and electrification of the powertrain are investing all the transport sector, where also hydrogen solutions play a crucial role.

The propulsion system is not the only big challenge in automotive. The move towards a more centralized SW and E/E architecture will come up with a significant new vehicle concept, that will be more connected and SW-oriented. AVL is deeply involved in these topics, through our own R&D projects and through several collaboration with the major worldwide OEM and Tiers 1.
