Improving the capabilities of hybrid trucks

We have assisted a large Nordic truck manufacturer in upgrading its hybrid truck. The upgrades include integrating new charging capabilities and increasing the truck’s range when running on batteries. To complete the truck’s regenerative braking system for charging by capturing kinetic energy, the new version of the hybrid truck has been equipped with an additional CCS-type charger, for charging the truck’s batteries when it is parked. Also, to increase the range of the electric powertrain the truck has been equipped with two additional batteries.

inContext has done all the necessary schematics for the truck’s wire harness, which includes the layout of its high and low voltage cables and junction boxes, designing the cable routing to sensors and actuators, machinery for cooling and heating of the batteries etc. Furthermore, inContext has done a number of digital test assemblies, and has taken responsibility for making the new system ready for production, among other things securing easy and efficient assembly.

While performing the upgrade inContext has introduced new agile methods of project execution and management, resulting in a significant reduction of the time needed to go from design to getting the product ready for production. These methods, which are based on a small group of designers for fast-paced decision making, and utilizing fast iterations in prototyping, have since been adopted by our clients. We are very proud of being able in this way to not only deliver a complex product upgrade within a short time frame, but also to contribute to improving our client’s way of working and reducing the time needed to go from prototype to production.
