Introduction
My work focuses on sustainable and alternative drivetrains for road transportation and especially heavy-duty trucks. With simulations, anaylsis and design optmization methods for vehicle concepts and powertrain design I want to contribute to greener transportation and less polution. My methods include Vehicle Simulation, Life Cycle Assessment, Eco Efficiency, Economics and Optimization Algorithmns.

Die Corona-Krise wird den Wandel in der Automobilindustrie beschleunigen und der Elektromobilität noch schneller zum Durchbruch verhelfen. Wer früh begonnen hat, erntet nun die Früchte. Leider wird es aber viele Verlierer geben.
Article
Full-text available
The transportation sector needs to significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions. European manufacturers in particular must develop new vehicles and powertrains to comply with recent regulations and avoid fines for exceeding CO2 emissions. To answer the question regarding which powertrain concept provides the best option to lower the environmental i...

Stand Alone Version of the longitudinal dynamics, weight and cost model of the Truck2030 project (formerly named HDVSim). Please also see the project homepage Truck2030 (https://www.mw.tum.de/en/ftm/main-research/vehicle-concepts/truck-2030-bavarian-cooperation-for-transport-efficiency/) to find more information about us and our work.
Article
Dieselgate and the public focus on sustainability raise the question to what extent sustainability is implemented in automotive companies. Although, mandatory reporting tracks companies’ sustainability strategies and goals, this does not entail comprehensive operational measures to increase company sustainability. To analyze internal sustainability...
Article
Despite the Paris Climate Agreement and other international pledges to reduce anthropogenic carbon-dioxide emissions, road transportation emissions are increasing. Therefore, the European Union has introduced fines for exceeding CO2-limits beginning in 2025, forcing European truck manufacturers to replace diesel-powered vehicles with low-emission v...
Article
To reach cost-parity with diesel trucks, battery-electric trucks require fast-chargeable lithium-ion cells with a high energy density and cycle life, at a low specific cost. However, cells generally excel at only a fraction of these characteristics. To help select the optimal cell, we have developed the techno-economic cell selection method. The me...
Article
Full-text available
The decarbonization of the transport sector, and thus of road-based transport logistics, through electrification, is essential to achieve European climate targets. Battery electric trucks offer the greatest well-to-wheel potential for CO2 saving. At the same time, however, they are subject to restrictions due to charging events because of their lim...

Wie beinahe jede Industrie des letzten Jahrhunderts, ist auch die Nutzfahrzeugindustrie im Wandel. Dabei spielen, die aus dem Pkw-Bereich bekannten, Trends natürlich ebenso eine Rolle. Wir möchten uns hier allerdings auf zwei Trends beschränken, die maßgeblichen Einfluss auf die Treibhausgasemissionen und damit auf die Wahl des Antriebs haben. Zunä...
Article
Full-text available
The launch of both battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and autonomous vehicles (AVs) on the global market has triggered ongoing radical changes in the automotive sector. On the one hand, the new characteristics of the BEV powertrain compared to the combustion type have resulted in new central parameters, such as vehicle range, which then become an imp...
Article
Full-text available
The advancement of electric mobility as a measure to comply with international climate targets and sustain renewable resources in the future has led to an electrification of the mobility sector in recent years. This trend has not been spared in the logistics and commercial vehicle sector. Emerging electric powertrain concepts for long-haul vehicles...
Conference Paper
Automobile manufacturers are in the midst of the greatest phase of transformation in their history. The paradigms they used over recent decades are gradually dissolving. Two new megatrends are drastically changing the market. On the one hand, there is sustainability, which is causing the ever-increasing replacement of the combustion engine by the e...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
The future focus of research in the automotive sector will be on automation and data-driven technologies. These technologies provide new services and values to customers, owners and other stakeholders in mobility. We propose a wizard-of-oz like method to evaluate future user needs and redesign the current approach of vehicle development. The mobili...
Article
Full-text available
New and unsaturated markets are predominantly located in countries with low incomes. To successfully establish businesses in these new markets, an increasing globalization of value creation is necessary. The integration of these new markets is challenged by their dynamics, turbulence and regulation. Above all, an initially low and volatile demand a...
Conference Paper
Heavy Duty Truck Platooning promises to reduce the fuel consumption in long haul road transportation. This paper analyzes possible fuel savings, taking different driving scenarios and the energy demand of the vehicles’ cooling system into account. To estimate the aerodynamic drag resistance and radiator airflow, a platoon of European flat nose box...
Article
Full-text available
Long‐haul transportation demand is predicted to increase in the future, resulting in higher carbon dioxide emissions. Different drivetrain technologies, such as hybrid or battery electric vehicles, electrified roads, liquefied natural gas and hydrogen, might offer solutions to this problem. To assess their ecological and economic impact, these conc...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Optimum drivetrain design is the key objective for achieving climate and economy improvements in the long-haul industry. The approach introduced focuses on the optimization of electronic component design. Not only are the longitudinal dynamics and the energy consumption included, but a detailed cost model of the components is also applied. The obje...

Hi,
we're perfroming a Social LCA for automotive Li-Ion Batteries and are currentely looking for some information from the Social Hotspot Database.
It would be great if someone can help us out.
Best regards
