Connected and Automated Driving:
New Services Models, Connected and Automated Mobility Solutions
As today’s society is undergoing a rapid demographic, social and behavioral change, the global transportation sector is at the beginning of a structural reorganization.
The worldwide trend towards digitalization, urbanization, fuel efficiency, constant connectedness, increased environmental awareness and the boom of the sharing economy requires enormous efforts towards smart and cost-efficient multimodal travel and transportation.
FEV Consulting guides and supports OEMs, suppliers, digital players, utility and insurance companies by shaping their growth strategies and developing new products and services, innovative business models and tomorrow’s technology solutions.
In many projects, FEV Electric / Electronics and FEV Consulting work together and create technical concepts, feasibility studies and prototypes. If desired, field tests provide answers to functionality in real life conditions and end-consumer feedback.

Gamified Eco-Coaches – Unlocking Fuel & Emission Reduction Potential
The long drive for Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reduction & fuel efficiency
In the past mainly exhaust pollutants such as NOx or PM have been in the focus of legislators and according limits have been reduced to a fraction of their original levels in all major markets. Nowadays the discussion about climate change and the role of CO2 is getting more and more into focus and already led to the additional introduction of GHG respectively CO2 emission regulations. For the future, significantly further tightened GHG regulations have to be expected. FEV expects that targets in EU and China regarding fleet CO2 emissions reduce by more than 50% in 2025 vs. 2006. This will be a huge technical challenge for OEMs and suppliers, because stringent pollutant as well as GHG limits have to be fulfilled at the same time. Recent approaches to improve engine efficiency include friction reduction measures, variable subsystems such as variable valve timing and lift, flexible fuel injection systems with increased fuel injection pressures, advanced control algorithms and electrification. All of these measures are purely technology driven – one major impact factor has been left out: the engagement of behavioral fuel and emission reduction.
