Algorithms for IC engines

The Indian Institute of Technology, Mandi, researchers, along with Robert Bosch Engineering and Business Solutions Private Limited, Bangalore, have developed algorithms to predict the functioning of vehicular Internal Combustion (IC) engines so that their operation can be optimised and fuel efficiency maximised with minimum emission.

The IC engine fuelled by petrol and diesel, powers 99.8 per cent of global transport and, in doing so, generates about 10 per cent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Alternatives including battery electric vehicles and other fuels like biofuels and hydrogen are slowly gaining ground. As of now, they are often used in conjunction with conventional IC engines. It is imperative that IC engine designs are optimised in order to ensure minimal emissions over the entire lifespan of the engine.
