Reducing Fuel Waste in Off-Highway Vehicles

Large off-highway vehicles used in construction can waste significant fuel because they are often left running while idle. To reduce that waste, engineer Dr. James Marco of the University of Warwick, Coventry, England, is leading a team designing new intelligent power systems.

One promising lead is use of a pioneering technology called micro/mild hybridization, which could predict when machinery requires a shift between low and high power.
