Bringing mobility into Germany’s transition to a new energy economy is a complex undertaking. While carmakers are developing more economical com- bustion engines and alternative drive systems, research establishments and companies are working on making more efficient use of vehicles. A new data logger developed by Fraunhofer researchers simultaneously collects data from vehicles with combustion engines, electric drives, external sensors, and location data, and permits the development of new hybrid and electric vehicles.

  • The data logger developed by the New Drive Systems NAS project group in Karlsruhe collects vehicles’ operational data and determines usage profiles.
  • Various application scenarios reduce the operating costs of vehicle fleets.
  • Easy installation and activation of the system.
