Towards brand-independent architectures, components and systems for next generation electrified vehicles optimised for the infrastructure
The virtual E-VOLVE (Electric Vehicle Optimized for Life, Value and Efficiency) Cluster is realizing and monitoring synergies between eight projects from the GV-01 Horizon 2020 call to execute joint dissemination, exploitation and standardization activities. The Projects ACHILES, CEVOLVER, SYS2WHEEL, EVC1000, and Multi-Moby are the members of the E-VOLVE Cluster that will present their achievements in this paper. Achiles, SYS2Wheel, EVC1000: The integration of the BEV demonstrators with the modeling, design and prototyping of the powertrain and chassis components has been successfully achieved with a new wheel concept and out-of-phase control for the brake system and a new torque vectoring algorithm for enhanced vehicle motion control. Performance and safety-related benefits of integrated corner solutions with in-wheel motors will be reported in the full paper.
