The tour of the Automotive Research Laboratory at the University of Michigan will include state-of-the-art research facilities for investigation of advanced engine concepts and hybrid powertrains. It will highlight setups for in-depth studies of novel clean and efficient combustion systems, such as HCCI and PPCI, boosting, aftertreatment, and hybrid architectures. The experimental facilities span a range from single-cylinder optical engines to an integrated powertrain-in-the-loop setup for running a complete hybrid propulsion system concurrently with a virtual vehicle.
