Commercial Vehicles - On Road

Powertrains for light, medium and heavy-duty commercial vehicles use an increasing number of complex systems for engine, transmission, electric drives, exhaust aftertreatment and the respective electronic control systems. The key is to balance this complexity with the life cycle cost of the vehicle.

Battery development for On-Road and Off-Road applications

Development of future solutions – from grid to road

AVL has gained substantial experiences in the field of battery development to support future electrification and CO2-free mobility. AVL offers customer-oriented, tailored solutions from systems engineering to provision of functional prototypes, development and validation of series production bound systems.
Emission Regulation is moving forward. Euro 6 has arrived in Europe, 40CFR1065 and 40CFR1066 in the US as well as the new Worldwide Light Duty Test Procedure has been published as Global technical regulation. And more challenges to come for the different applications. Measuring hybrid powertrains with their complexity, new measurement methods, changed procedures and real driving emissions are just a few examples.
The transmission has become a fully integrated component in a commercial vehicle powertrain. Today's variety of different transmission concepts makes it necessary to consider the whole powertrain as one system. The extensive engineering experience and the use of efficient development and simulation tools are the basis for AVL‘s innovative solutions. AVL has developed all types of transmissions/transaxles such as manual, automated manual, automatic and double clutch transmissions.
The system captures various driveability related sensor and CAN bus signals, such as longitudinal acceleration, engine speed, vehicle speed, pedal positions and vibrations. These input quantities are collected by the DMU2 (DRIVE Main Unit) and passed on to the AVL-DRIVE software for further processing and analysis. More than 100 different driving modes (engine, transmission and chassis related) are detected automatically and more than 800 driveability related criteria are rated in real-time....
With more than 60 years' experience in engine development with particular focus on engine development for commercial vehicles, AVL is the right partner for all development activities creating a new, upgraded or improved engine. All this experience shows direct advantage in every single customer project to quickly find the optimum solution tailored to every customer's different requirements AVL has developed unique tools for the development of engines in the complete Powertrain, to optimize...
