  1. The SmartTruck Program Precision computer model of PepsiCo/Frito-Lay ProStar PepsiCo/Frito-Lay has provided 4 tractors and 6 trailers for testing and modification BMI Corporation

  2. SmartTruck OverviewOur Partners Kennedy Space Center

  3. The SmartTruck Program Experience from Aerospace, Racing and Ground Transportation CFD Technology was developed in the Aviation and Aerospace industry Complicated flow fields required advanced analysis methods New tools were developed at NASA and Boeing to assist Aerodynamic Engineers in measuring and optimizing complex airflows AERION FLAPS 25 NAVIER STOKES SOLUTION AOA = 22, M= .2 These same tools are utilized today in motorsports & transportation BMI Corporation & SmartTruck Products

  4. Aerion Super Sonic Business Jet • Activity: • Program Management (COO) • High Speed Design • Low Speed Design • Optimization • Status: • Preliminary Design Complete • Meets Goal Performance • Refinement Continuing • Commercialization BMI Corporation & SmartTruck Products

  5. Boeing MD-80 Winglet • Activity: • High Speed Design • Low Speed Design • Optimization • Status: • Preliminary Design Complete • Meets Performance Goals • Mechanical Design Underway BMI Corporation & SmartTruck Products

  6. Racing Daytona Prototype Indy Car NASCAR Our racing background helps the SmartTruck Team adapt aerospace technology to ground transportation • Our racing background gives the SmartTruck Team the Ability To: • Rapid Prototype • Precision Fabricate • Field/Track Test BMI Corporation & SmartTruck Products

  7. Ford Hydrogen Fuel Cell Concept Car • Activity: • Ford Hybrid Vehicle • 1 Yr. Aero Development Program • Status: • Aero Goals Met ( Exceeded) • Attractive, Practical Design BMI Corporation & SmartTruck Products

  13. Aerodynamic Assessment and Opportunities • Of all vehicles operating on the road, class 8 long haul trucks would benefit most from low drag designs • Class 8 long haul drive cycle: 80% highway vs. 20% non-highway • Class 8 long haul trucks average 125,000 miles per year (100,000 highway miles) • However, among common vehicles on the road, class 8 long haul trucks have the highest drag • If all 1.3 million long haul trucks operated with Cd = .26, the US would annually: • Save 6.8 billion gallons of diesel • Reduce 75 million tons CO2 • Save $19 billion in fuel costs BMI Corporation & SmartTruck Products
