Intelligent integration for hydrogen: The need for invisible glue

Some of the largest challenges developing future hydrogen and EV propulsion systems lie in the ‘invisible’ art of integration. Matching, optimizing and ensuring seamless control and communication of sub-systems in an efficient and safe manner is critical. The engineering effort is significant barrier for many to get to production. The result? For many low-mid volume manufacturers of commercial vehicles and industrial equipment, the cost of adopting hydrogen isn’t feasible, slowing the market and stunting end-user demand. This talk will review the challenge and look at potential solutions to the invisible problem of integration, enabling a new era of possibilities
