9:50 am - 10:20 am Match and Meet

Match and Meet | Identify your group while at the same time getting to know many of your peers in a short amount of time

10:30 am - 11:00 am Refreshment break and networking

From the laboratory to the real world: It is time to evolve
• Vision of the future for in-use emissions that include online regulations, air chemistry feedback models, and inventory assessments
• Discussion of the shortcoming of our regulation methods and the VW scandal in 2016, the U.S. heavy duty scandal in 2000, and the recent Cummins Inc. issue
• Regulators are looking for ways to move from the laboratory to the real world. European regulations are moving in a direction with Real Driving Emissions (RDE) • New approach is called continuous monitoring with vehicle self-reporting: OSAR (Onboard Sensing Analysis and Reporting), at the California Air Resources Board (CARB), they are calling it REAL (Real Emissions Assessment Logging)
• To have each vehicle (millions) sensing and reporting their emissions to a cloud based system. From this the goal is to characterize the vehicles as a fleet where those emissions are being emitted and when to implement policy to controls spatially, regionally, and temporarily. • Start evolving our regulatory process into a modern connected dynamic world to protect health and the environment

11:40 am - 12:20 pm Challenges of RDE measurements for type approval and development

Challenges of RDE measurements for type approval and development
• Review of the past 2 years • 2 waves of fleet re-certification (WLTP and RDE step1)
• Discrepancy between “normal driving” and “all RDE tests”
Annette Feucht, Global Regulatory Affairs Emissions, BMW Group

12:20 pm - 1:50 pm Luncheon and networking

1:50 pm - 2:30 pm Global Connected Vehicle Data Challenges: Considerations for RDE and OBD

 Global Connected Vehicle Data Challenges: Considerations for RDE and OBD

2:30 pm - 3:10 pm Regulation expectations for future sensor technologies

Regulation expectations for future sensor technologies
Expectations are that systems operate optimally and provide warnings whenever errors exist. In designing future sensor technologies, manufacturers must design in capability to control optimal systems, detect limit systems, and to detect when the sensor is unable to perform any task.
Mr. Bogema will discuss his experience with sensor technology in general and how to design to these goals.

4:30 pm - 5:00 pm Evening Get-Together

Evening Get-Together | Join our evening Get-Together and take this opportunity to network and make new business contacts. Or just to relax and round off your first conference day.

5:20 pm - 5:50 pm Registration for Workshop D

5:30 pm - 7:30 pm Workshop D: RDE TECHNOLOGY – WHAT IS THE FUTURE?

RDE TECHNOLOGY – WHAT IS THE FUTURE?
This workshop’s primary goal is to understand what are the available technologies that will be the driver for changes in RDE vehicle technology.
This workshop will focus on:
• Emissions from hybrids
• Aftertreatment systems for NOx
