The decarbonization of the transport sector, and thus of road-based transport logistics, through electrification, is essential to achieve European climate targets. Battery electric trucks offer the greatest well-to-wheel potential for CO2 saving. At the same time, however, they are subject to restrictions due to charging events because of their lim...
To increase the competitiveness of battery electric long-haul trucks, industry is developing a charging standard which is capable of providing up to 3,75MW charging power. The resulting possibility of en-route fast-charging has a significant impact on the sizing of the battery system and on the required properties of the used cell, minimizing the d...
Vehicle concept development is a domain that has applied and detailed its process over decades. The megatrends of the 21st century of “automation” and “sharing” influence the vehicle concept in such a manner that this well-running process needs an update. The vehicle itself and the customer of the vehicle are changing and therefore the components o...
The megatrends of individualization and sharing will dramatically change our consumer behavior. The needs of a product’s users will be central input for its development. Current development processes are not suitable for this product development; thus, we propose a combination of a genetic algorithm and a fuzzy system for user-centered development....
In recent years, topics of digitalisation, urbanisation and sustainability are shaping future developments in the automotive industry and pose new challenges to the individual areas of vehicle development. In the design and simulation of multiple components in the vehicle, especially in powertrain, generically generated driving cycles play an impor...
In the Electric Vehicle Lab (EV Lab), we answer questions related to the global global transition to electromobility. We enhance electric vehicles’ efficiency, sustainability and economics by optimizing and accelerating the integration of powertrain components, such as the high-voltage battery, through the entire vehicle to their operation in mobility and energy systems. For this purpose, we use both real-world and realistic laboratory tests using our extensive infrastructure as well as sophisticated simulations.
