Next Generation of Algorithms to Enhance and Balance Energy Efficiency and Driving Dynamics for Electric Cars
Research Project , 2018 – 2023

Research Motivating Problem:

Electric propulsion of road vehicle will appear in more configurations than with combustion engines; electric machines can be numerous and apply independent torque on individual axles and wheels. This means possibilities for new problems and new opportunities when it comes to designing the control both for low energy consumtion and good safety and performance.

Envisioned product/solution, year:

A common, generic function architecture for all/many configurations to:

• Arbitrate motion requests from driver and AD
• Coordinate N×T_prop, 4×T_brake (and possibly Steering)
 

Research question(s):

•How to Balance Energy, Drivability and Motion?
•How to keep today’s functions ABS, ESC, …?
 

Deliverables:

•Proposed updates to today’s function architecture
•Verification in simulation and real test vehicle
•1 VehDyn PhD
