Designing lighter transmissions for energy-efficient vehicles
Car safety has been associated with several components that combine to add extra weight to a vehicle. As pressure to conserve energy and reduce emissions increases, the question of reducing vehicle weight without compromising safety is paramount. LIVE-I project will focus on redesigning the transmission gear system, the centre of several complex and interdependent functions in a vehicle. It will model new structures and materials while also paying attention to adjusting noise, vibration and harshness levels. In addition, LIVE-I will also set up a programme involving ESR training to build more efficient gear transmission systems.
