The goal of the Omnium System Car (OSCAR) research project is to redesign the front compartment of the car using modular systems. These modules integrate new functionality, can carry various equipment and can optimize their positioning around the engine compartment. The modules developed in OSCAR are:
  1. 1
    cooling module
  2. 2
    front quarter modules
  3. 3
    plenum cover module
The functionality of these modules are described as well as the way they can be assembled on the car. Gains in terms of weight, cost and investments have also been investigated.
