On June 12, the HECTOR partners have met in Brussels in order to discuss data collection in the project. The partners have considered the monitoring plan, the data which need to be collected and the methodology.
Monitoring the performance of alternatively fuelled vehicles is an essential activity in their development process. By measuring fuel consumption, emissions, performance, comfort levels, driver aspects, but also reliability and maintainability, the partners and observer cities will be able to check whether the vehicle complies with the requirements defined at the start of the project.
For data collection and data analysis the HAN will involve students from both the University of Applied Science (HAN Automotive)
and the local Training Centres (ROC's in Dutch). In this way students will also become more familiar with hydrogen vehicles and
applications in mobility.
This meeting was also the occasion to update each other on tendering processes and to spend more time together.
