Regulatory Panel Discussion
"Tail pipe emissions are considered one of the major factors adversely affecting the environment. There is an urgent demand in many regions of the world to reduce the carbon footprints due to transportation. Smog generated from mobility applications has crippling effects in mega urban areas. The increasing focus on fuel economy and emissions reduction have caused a rapid expansion of sustainable mobility applications. Electrification of cars and trucks will significantly reduce the dependence on the internal combustion engine using fossil fuels, leading to a significant positive impact on cleaning the environment. In this panel discussion, the focus is on the rapidly changing regulations landscape and the technological advances required to achieve the fuel economy and emissions mandates.
