New Fuel Efficiency Technology Report Now Available from SAE International

WARRENDALE, Pa., Oct. 12, 2012 - A new report, “Technology Insights for Mobility Industries – Fuel Efficiency,” is now available exclusively to SAE International members through the online collaborative platform EngineerXchange.

Providing technical insights and career guidance to engineers who want to position themselves to solve the engineering challenges of tomorrow, the report includes guidance from industry experts, engineers, and business managers in the automotive, aerospace, and commercial vehicle manufacturing industries.

The report offers:

- What types of systems are under development in each industry to improve fuel efficiency

- The technical challenges facing these systems
