HAN Automotive Research (HAN-AR) is a research partner for the professional domain. We offer companies and organizations a broad spectrum of research services around the themes ‘INTELLIGENT MOBILITY’ and ‘GREEN MOBILITY’.
‘INTELLIGENT MOBILITY’ is completely about smart vehicles: Technology that ensures safer, more comfortable and more efficient transport. The Dutch economy, as well as other countries, require modern technological solutions to reduce congestion problems and, at the same time, improve traffic safety by reducing injuries and fatalities. Smart vehicles make use of high-tech intelligent systems to assist the drivers for vehicle control that help in preventing accidents. Themes such as ‘Advanced driver support’, ‘Autonomous vehicles’, ‘Cooperative vehicles’ corresponds to the objectives of ‘INTELLIGENT MOBILITY’.
‘GREEN MOBILITY’ focusses on the development of new and improved powertrain systems for vehicles. Sustainability is thereby the most important theme for the near future, with an emphasis on reducing fuel consumption and emission of harmful gases. Our research programmes such as ‘Electrification of the powertrain’, ‘Optimising fuels, engines and emissions’ and ‘Lightweight automotive design’ complement those of the future powertrains.
