OSU's Yue Cao and Alan Fern will use advanced electrical propulsion and artificial intelligence research to create the power electronics, motor drive technology and energy management tools for a hydrogen fuel cell truck tractor with a 600-mile range, a 25,000-hour cell life and a payload capacity equivalent to that of a diesel truck.
