As everything starts with defining final user requirements, almost all project partners are involved in the design activities. Two groups work respectively on vehicle’s design and infrastructure dimensioning. Efficient communication and working organisation are essential to produce results that will enable the teams to attain the challenging objectives of the project.


Main stages for vehicle design:

The vehicle design group starts with the definition of system requirements that is directly followed by simulation and modeling studies of the powertrain. These studies are key to success for building an innovative vehicle whose motion relies on the use of clean energy, has no impact on the environment and still satisfies a demanding industrial need. At the same time, mechanical engineering, style and ergonomics studies are performed.


Infrastructure design:

First task consists in defining the system requirements. Then, the sizing of the components of the chain infrastructure is carried out at different levels of achievement, from a preliminary design to final design, including inputs from the group working on vehicle design. Considering the field of application (hydrogen), it is essential for the project success to conduct an extensive safety and regulation analysis. Since this project intends to learn about hydrogen and fuel cell mobility applications, all equipment installed will be monitored. Therefore, the monitoring system’s design will be a crucial part of the design work.
