Mobility and the Continued Importance of Efficiency
Ann M. Schlenker, Director, Center for Transportation Research, Argonne National Laboratory, USA
The transportation industry is experiencing an inflection point for new automotive technology, connected and
automated vehicles, mobility service companies, and electrification. Simultaneously, societal expectations are
evolving for urbanization growth and an on-demand service economy. Efficiency and optimization opportunities exist
at multiple levels in the value chain of mobility and can yield tangible benefits to the consumer.
The presentation will provide external drivers that are encouraging the shift from a transportation-centric focus to
mobility, and highlight research examples that demonstrate the need to remain centered on efficiency at various scales
of technologies, systems and services.

Open Research Issues for a Sustainable Hydrogen-Economy
Daniel Hissel, Director of FCLAB Research Federation - CNRS, Scientific Advisor of H2SYS, France
Continuous depletion of the crude oil and gradual increase in the oil price have emphasized the need of a suitable
alternative to our century-old oil-based economy. A clean and efficient power supply device based on a
renewable energy source has to be available to face this issue. Among the different technological alternatives,
fuel cell power generation becomes a more and more interesting and promising solution for both automotive
industry and stationary power plants. However, different technological and socio-economics hurdles have still to
be overcome before seeing competitive products in these fields.
Among them, different issues must be solved regarding development of specific components (e.g. air
compressors, high efficient power electronics, …), new on-line energy management strategies for fuel cell
hybridized systems, efficient state-of-health estimation methodologies, able also to operate in real-time and with
limited number of additional physical sensors. Moreover, regarding the increase of the durability and of the
reliability of those systems, prognostic algorithms able to estimate the remaining useful lifetime of the fuel cell
system under actual operating conditions are requested. Finally, cost reduction and public acceptance are key
drivers in the introduction of all new disruptive technologies. The proposed presentation will provide a state-of-
art on these different items.

On Future Mobility
Alan Amici, Vice President & Chief Technology Officer, Transportation Solutions, TE Connectivity, USA
Technology is impacting mobility more than at any time in history. Uber and Lyft offer viable transportation
solutions for nearly any situation, creating pressure on the traditional ownership model. Alternative powertrains
are no longer exotic offerings of niche players, overcoming one of the major barriers to entry for fledgling
OEMs; that of the capital-intensive internal combustion engine. Drivers will have a variety of safety features to
reduce crashes and autonomous vehicles will change the mobility lifestyles of young and old. Each of these
technologies will affect the type of products the auto industry will need, so it is imperative to recognize the
trends and anticipate changes to the product offering.

Thermal Management and Safety Concerns for Li-ion Batteries in Electric Mobility and
Autonomous Vehicles Applications
Said Al-Hallaj, CEO, AllCell Technologies, LLC, USA
Lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery technology is emerging as the energy storage technology of choice for electric
mobility, autonomous vehicles and smart grid applications due to its high energy density, higher power density,
long cycle life, and steady cost reduction. However, recent and persistent high-profile safety incidents (e.g. Tesla
vehicles, Samsung smart phone, Boeing 787 Dreamliner) are posing serious concerns about the inherent safety
of Li-ion batteries and could hinder future growth of this critical energy storage technology. Alternative
technologies such as solid state and “beyond lithium” batteries are promising but are still in the early stage of
development and are not expected to replace Li-ion batteries in the near future. An overview of Li-ion battery
safety and thermal management challenges will be presented. Passive thermal management of Li-ion batteries
using phase change composites (PCC) technology will be discussed as an alternative solution compared to
conventional thermal management technologies.
