Low Emission Mobility Platform (MobiLean)



MobiLean brings together a set of 5 platforms to address in a holistic way the issues related to the development of tomorrow’s vehicles (clean, less energy-intensive vehicles)

These platforms, listed among those of the INS2I of the CNRS, are part of the network of Carnot Institutes (CARNAUTO) Study and development of energy optimization system for vehicles.

MobiLean notably allows:
- Study and development of fuel optimisation systems for hybrid vehicles;
- Characterization of thermal, electric or hybrid traction chains
- Development of driving aids
- System tests (algorithms)
- Development of driving laws for petrol combustion engines / advanced diagnostic tool.
This MobiLean platform, part of the PEGASE shared regional platform, continues its development through the RITMEA project co-funded by the State, the Hauts-de-France region and the Féder OP 2021 - 2027.
