VECTO simulates Heavy Duty Vehicles, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The Industrial Informatics group helps to develop the EU wide certification method for the CO2 calculation of Heavy Duty Vehicles. The method is based on the measurement of the components relevant for the fuel consumption (mass, rolling resistance coefficient of tires, aerodynamic drag, losses in the drive train, fuel map of the engine, power demand of auxiliaries) combined with the simulation of fuel consumption and CO2 emissions for the entire vehicle using the measured component data.
