In the project video produced by TOFAS, you can see how the electric hub motor technology and the new generation connectivity leads to more range, higher effeciency and more space for electrified vehicles. Watch it out: https://youtu.be/TVrDPeb4dzk
Two relevant papers could be published recently and are open access.
One conference paper, titled „Towards Brand-Independent Architectures, Components and Systems for Next Generation Electrified Vehicles Optimised for the Infrastructure“ was published in the proceedings journal of SAE World in October 2022. The authors joint forces with the Evolve cluster: Eric Armengaud, Bernhard Brandstätter, Matej Biček, Joze Buh, Aldo Sorniotti, Ahu Ece Hartavi, Christof Schernus, Thomas Geury, Stella Arapoglou, Marius Heydrich, Valentin Ivanov. DOI: https://doi.org/10.4271/2022-01-0918
The Journal Paper “On nonlinear model predictive direct yaw moment control for trailer sway mitigation” by Martino De Bernardis, Gabriele Rini, Francesco Bottiglione, Ahu Ece Hartavi and Aldo Sorniotti was published in Vehicle System Dynamics in August 2022. DOI: https://doi.org/10.1080/00423114.2022.2054352
The third and last newsletter of SYS2WHEEL is launched!
You will find a summary of all project achievements and the latest news on meetings and publications. See a detailed comparison of the amibious targets and the measures that the consortium has developed in over 45 months of intensive research. Have a good read.
The second newsletter of SYS2WHEEL is launched!
You will find three topics the project team is currently investigating: in-wheel energy harvesting, impacts of in-wheel e-drive and a model based real-time robust hitch angel controller. In addition, you can find information on latest project activities and dissemination events. And if you wonder about the meaning of the colorful picture on the left, you will find the answer in the newsletter. Have a good read.
Three important project deliverables are launched!
During the last months, three main tasks of the project have been finished. Now theses reports can be downloaded here.
First, you can find the analysis on the energy-efficiency of a torque-vectoring control system for an electric front-wheel-drive commercial vehicle, written by our researchers from the University of Surrey.
Second, our project partner FPT has finished its report on the development and integration of the e-Axle subsystem. The left image gives a glimpse of the design of the e-Axle.
And third, you can find the report on the development and integration of the in-wheel system by elaphe.
The first newsletter of SYS2WHEEL is launched!
You will find insights on three challenging topics the project team is currently working on: in-wheel motor technology, cost-benefit-analysis and new torque-vectoring controller. In addition, you can find information on project goals and dissemination activities. Have a good read.
