Innovation and Networks Executive Agency

IMPERIUM

INEA ceased operations on 31 March 2021. The European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA) was established on 1 April 2021 to take over its legacy portfolio as well as additional EU funding programmes.
IMplementation of Powertrain Control for Economic and Clean Real driving emIssion and fuel ConsUMption

The IMPERIUM project is working on fuel consumption reduction by 20% (diesel and urea) whilst keeping the vehicle within the legal limits for pollutant emissions. The approach relies on three stages targeting the improvement of the control strategy:
• Optimisation of the main component control (engine, exhaust after-treatment, transmission, waste heat recovery, e-drive) to improve their performance
• Optimisation of the energy source control in various driving situations
• Creating a more comprehensive understanding of the mission (eHorizon, mission-based learning) for a better long-term planning and optimisation of the different energy sources

The IMPERIUM consortium consists of major European actors and is able to provide a 100% European value chain for the development of future powertrain control strategies for trucks.
