BP Fuel Product Development Advisor Brian Macey and his team use RiCK™ as part of their research process. Brian says:

 A consultancy like Ricardo may have useful information for our team as they may have already collected the type of outcomes we are looking for. They may have collated similar information that will help us with the problem we are trying to solve. We’re usually looking to make vehicles as fuel-efficient as possible and reduce emissions. It’s just as important that our technologist knows how to search and the search criteria to use.

Dr Cedric Rouaud, Global Technical Expert on Thermal Systems at Ricardo, says:

 When our team were working on a technology review for a Tier 1 supplier, we were looking for disruptive technologies in the thermal management domain. We were able to screen several abstracts in 2 days and extract the relevant information for our report. Using RiCK™ enables us to maintain our thermal management literature review, which is now reaching 350 pages of information on ICE, electric components, cabin comfort, holistic thermal management, multi-temperature cooling systems and advanced thermal control.
