Intelligent integration for hydrogen: The need for invisible glue
A large challenge when developing future hydrogen and EV propulsion systems lies in the ‘invisible’ specialism of integration. Matching, optimising and ensuring seamless control and communication of sub-systems in an efficient and safe manner is critical. The engineering effort to do this is and get to production isn't insignificant. The result? For many low-mid volume manufacturers of commercial vehicles and industrial equipment, the development cost of adopting hydrogen isn’t feasible, slowing the market and stunting end-user demand. This presentation will review the challenge and look at potential solutions to the invisible problem of integration, enabling a new era of possibilities.
