Vehicle Integration For US EPA 2010 Emissions and Lowest Cost of Ownership 2010-01-1956
This paper presents an overview of the process Cummins uses to integrate the engine and aftertreatment systems with the vehicle. This is a system integration process which assembles various subsystems such as the engine, aftertreatment, drivetrain, electronics, and cooling systems into one vehicular end product. It requires close collaboration with vehicle manufacturers and their suppliers. Given the wide range of vehicle types and applications, a robust process is needed. A synopsis of this vehicle integration process is included.
