Conditions

In order to present a diverse programme, we prefer to receive a variety of themes and activities. There is a strong preference for showing demonstrations that match at least one of the conference topics Safe.Smart.Sustainable.

  1. The goal is to have a good representation and spread of the demonstrations between an initial idea and a pre-commercial prototype with high TRL levels.
  2. Demonstrations with integrated solutions covering the main theme of Safe. Smart. Sustainable. is preferred.
  3. Safety is an important precondition. The safety of participants, conference visitors and spectators must be guaranteed. Organizers of demonstrations (demonstrators) are obliged to take out sufficient insurance for all risks associated with the demonstrations and their equipment.
  4. During a demonstration there is something to see or experience and personal English and Dutch explanations are given about the content of the demonstration. A demonstration should not be confused with a lecture or a workshop.
  5. In principle, the demonstrations take place in normal traffic on public roads or on public land. This is considered a small demo. Only RDW approved vehicles, services or products are shown.
  6. Demonstrations on closed roads are also possible in consultation. This is considered a large demo. If desired and possible, the A270 roadway will be closed at a certain time during the week and made available for demonstrations. The demonstrator is responsible for obtaining an exemption from the road authority and/or RDW on time. The organization of the Automotive Week can take care of appropriate traffic measures. Tailormade agreements will be made between the demonstrator, the competent authority and those responsible for the Automotive Week 2023.

SolarOnTop

April 16, 2023 - April 19, 2023

The SolarOnTop saves around 2.000 liters of fuel per year, that’s almost 7 tonnes of CO2!

IM Efficiency is a technology scale-up from the Netherlands and we’re making trucks sustainable. Instead of only focusing on the truck itself, we use renewable energy sources in the trailer. We believe that the trailer is the key to creating fully sustainable transportation that is reliable and affordable. Our first product is SolarOnTop: a plug&play upgrade for trucks and trailers to reduce diesel fuel consumption with onboard solar energy. Flexible solar modules on top of the trailer generate electricity, a technology that is durable, light weight, and ultra-thin. An intelligent energy management system decides what to do with the solar energy to have the biggest impact: it can be stored in the SolarOnTop lithium battery for later use, or supplied directly to the truck and trailer to save fuel. At IM Efficiency, we turn trucks into mobile solar parks. That’s why we say: we make trucks love the sun.

Proto-type facility: From system integrator to complete vehicle building.

Capgemini Engineering in Helmond is the specialist for complete vehicle building of demonstrator vehicles, testing vehicles and production vehicles. Our core focus is on sustainable drive-line integration and ADAS and AD system integration for all markets and brands. During the facility tour we show a complete vehicle project and what we can bring on new technology integration.

Capgemini Engineering will show several interesting demos and give a sneak preview of their newly planned battery test center. 2 highlights:

  • Battery test center.

The need for validation and certification of high-capacity battery cells, modules and packs has sharply increased and has become a critical challenge for OEMs and tier 1 suppliers due to the enormous complexity and rapidly changing technology. In our newly built Battery Testing Laboratory, we provide performance testing for battery cells, modules and packs with regard to efficiency and effectiveness, aging tests as well as safety and reliability tests. We also support with corrosion, vibration and environmental testing.

  • Hardware in the Loop testing.

An important advantage of a HIL simulation is that an estimate of the expected behavior can be obtained during the development of a design. A further advantage of a HIL simulation is that all kinds of simulations can be performed without risk, which are very difficult or hardly impossible in reality. This results in great benefits in terms of time and costs. During the facility tour we show a live demonstration of a HIL application.
