Description

Richard Jacobson

Principle Investigator for the Advanced Vehicle Testing & Evaluation (AVTE) Project

Southwest Operations Manager, PI for AVTE Project, Intertek, Phoenix, AZ

 

TOPIC: Advanced Vehicle Testing Intertek Transportation Technology working with the DoE and several national laboratories on collecting “real world” data on a variety of alternative energy vehicles. Testing includes vehicle performance, durability, and operational costs helping consumers and the automotive industry better understand how vehicle technologies intended to reduce the consumption of petroleum actually perform in the streets. Testing begins with baseline determination and then the vehicles are driven approximately 200,000 miles over 3 yrs, collecting data on the overall performance of the vehicle and its innovative technologies. Refueling, maintenance and repair costs are tracked to ascertain the real world performance and the cost of ownership. This combination of real-world and laboratory analysis provides a more comprehensive understanding of what a customer and the industry can expect once they choose one of these alternative energy vehicles. The emergence of autonomous vehicle testing will also be discussed as part of the presentation and review of the new American Center for Mobility (ACM) proving grounds. https://avt.inl.gov/vehicle-type/all-powertrain-architecture
