The AVL International Commercial Powertrain Conference is the premier forum for truck, agricultural and construction equipment manufacturers to discuss powertrain technology challenges and solutions across their industries. The topics of the conference, which happens every two years, cover all five elements of a modern powertrain: engine, transmission, electric motor, battery and the electronic control which are used basically the same way in the quest for optimal efficiency and environmental compatibility. This event offers a unique opportunity for highly regarded professionals to address the synergy effects and distinctive characteristics of commercial vehicles, agricultural tractors and non-road vehicles, and industrial machinery. The conference held in 2013 focused on CO2 reduction, one of the most talked-about subjects in the mobility arena. These proceedings include 25 technical papers, covering cutting-edge topics such as: • CO2 reduction in tractor application • Hybrid architecture for chassis frame vehicle • Fuel efficiency in construction equipment • Emissions calculation in the logistics industry • Targeting 50% brake engine efficiency • Global challenges of modern agriculture • CO2 emissions and future initiatives in developing countries
