The project’s objective is to demonstrate the world’s first shared, electric work fleets with on- demand rides, tools, supplies and assets. Pilot projects will take place at several universities and colleges in Ontario. The study aims to test shared work fleets with university and college partners that have field staff (i.e., plumbers, electricians) through several pilot projects...
The aim of this proposed study is to advance the discipline of social media analytics and its application to public fleet decision makers. The project starts by integrating incoming social media feeds vis-a-vis public fleets and merges all incoming data into one cloud-platform...
In this project, an integrated vehicle system analyses of fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) (transit buses) will be conducted. There are module specific, independent, third party principal applicants involved in this project to ensure neutrality of the research and accounting procedures...
Since September 2018, Pantonium has provided newly developed technology to enable an intelligent on-demand bus service in Belleville, Ontario. The technology deployed to Belleville is currently an alpha version. Several new features and capabilities are slated to be added to the system based on feedback of the initial pilot as well as Belleville’s future goals for public transit expansion – specifically to a whole new area of Belleville...
The Electric Vehicle Enclave (EVE) Autonomous Vehicle Infrastructure Demonstration Pilot is a state-of-the-art project showcasing infrastructure-based autonomy in a complex residential environment. This project is designed to tackle some of the key challenges for autonomous vehicle penetration...
The Automated and Connected Electric Vehicle Integration: Optimization Analysis & Techno- Economic Predictive Analysis project will help municipalities across Ontario predictively assess and understand the feasibility of deploying and operating low-speed electrified autonomous shuttles (e- LSAs) within local municipal systems and specifically with regards to first-mile/last-mile solution building...
In the proposed project, the consortium will develop a novel bus charging technology that is backed up by a battery energy storage system. In the proposed project, eCAMION will lead a consortium composed of two academic partners and a potential deployment partner. The overall project query is to create a cheaper and more effective electric bus charging system, with reduced capital and operating costs...

This project focuses on the optimization of the system design. The main purpose is to accomplish commercialization of an “anti-idling” solution for public transit buses. Therefore, the project entails aspects of design, cost considerations, and safety concerns. A universal anti-idling solution is not possible because the pattern of idling varies with the type of vehicles as well as operating and environmental conditions...
Electrically heated catalysts constitute a universally applicable tool for temperature management in the exhaust after treatment system. Not only does it significantly increase the effectiveness of exhaust after treatment (reduction in HC, CO, and NOx, exhaust emissions), but it also offers potential for CO2 reduction at the same time, therefore saving fuel, in comparison with conventional measures such as engine- based catalyst heating...
Urban transit emissions have the highest impact environmentally and socially, especially on the health hazard of the urban population. This study focuses on zero-emission fuel cell technology that can be used in: fuel-cell power/propulsion systems; battery electric power/propulsion systems with fuel cell as ranger extenders; and electric power/propulsion systems with battery- fuel cell electric hybrids...
A simulation tool was developed to support electric-bus deployment projects by predicting operational benefits, total CO2e savings, and charging requirements. The model is based on the original code developed via collaborations through the Pan-Canadian Electric Bus demonstration & Integration Trial: Phase I...
In order to assist public fleets (including transit agencies and utility/local distribution companies) to overcome the barriers of uncertainty and high risk associated with new electrified propulsion technologies integration, CUTRIC developed a consortium of industry partners to lead research into various aspects of electrified propulsion systems, vehicle-to-grid integration, and cybersecurity allied to e-buses...
