Ricardo Inc. has received a contract as part of the Fuel Efficient Ground Vehicle Demonstrator program launched by the U.S. Army's Tank Automotive Research, Development, and Engineering Center (TARDEC) to identify the best combinations of technologies for achieving the highest possible fuel efficiency for military ground vehicles while maintaining vehicle performance. For the first phase of the project, Ricardo will apply its Total Vehicle Fuel Economy modeling and simulation capabilities to predict the performance of various combinations of current and emerging technologies for the entire vehicle, including conventional and hybrid drive systems, transmissions, suspension systems, body configurations, and other vehicle systems. Ricardo expects to deliver the first set of proposed vehicle configurations within nine months.
