Improved Stability and Manoeuvrability using Electric Propulsion (ImprStabMan)

Electrified drivetrains offer new opportunities. Improvements in safety to come from active safety, since energy saving drives weight reduction, which limits use of passive safety. The objective of this study is to investigate, create and evaluate novel safety functions, using the electric propulsion system. This project focuses on events where the driver is in control, as opposed to autonomous driving. The scope of the project is to study performance enhancements regarding vehicle stability, manoeuvrability, braking and traction at different road conditions.
