Camcon Auto is developing IVA, an electrically driven valvetrain for internal combustion engines. It delivers engines with lower emissions and higher performance. This short video explains some of the benefits. There is more information on the rest of the websiteSee Autocar article on Camcon日本のautocar記事を見てください
IVA introduces fully digital control of airflow. Running engine tests indicate up to 6% steady state reductions in carbon dioxide production with a further 7-9% expected from improved combustion control during transients. HC and NOx emissions can also be significantly reduced. We expect fully calibrated vehicle results to be even better.
IVA allows engine control with unprecedented capability and outstanding results, Downsized engines which are more responsive to driver demand and can switch combustion cycle as required. The engine does what the driver needs and the valvetrain fits in conventional package dimensions
IVA operates at 12V, uses proven, established manufacturing techniques and is designed for manufacture from the ground up. On-cost is in line with the CO2 value equation. IVA will be supplied by the Tier 1 auto supply chain.
Camcon's technology does not just benefit engines. To show the breadth of applications on vehicles, we have developed other systems for use in transmission and HGV braking to date.
Packaging and safety requirements are leading to rapid growth in the fitment of Electric Park Brakes (EPB). Camcon’s Electric Transmission Lock provides an alternative solution that is effective, compact and low-cost and also eliminates the challenges associated with friction-based EPB technologies
A new ABS control mechanism that allows fuel-efficient low rolling resistance tyres to be fitted without any impact on stopping distance. Alternatively, a reduction in stopping distance of up to 20% can be achieved.
