The Future Of Trucking | The Shell Starship 2.0 Initiative
Shell Lubricants selected AIC Systems for the accurate fuel consumption measurement and will demonstrate the performance of the Shell Starship 2.0 vehicle during a coast-to-coast drive in the USA. The drive will begin in San Diego, California and end in Jacksonville, Florida. The drive will stop along the way to discuss with local truckers and others on what’s possible in reducing costs, emissions and increasing efficiency.
The Shell Starship 2.0 is equipped with the new AIC 7000 NEMO flowmeter and the Board Computer BC 3329 so the instantaneous display of the C02 emission is as well for an integral part of the data acquisition as the flow rate and fuel temperature are important values for the data analysis.
