At the focus of the Vehicle field of innovation are developments directly related to the e-vehicle. Central project subjects include thermal management and the ability to diagnose e-vehicles, but also research into interfaces and components for vehicle communication.
The energy supply for e-vehicles is a multifaceted subject. The focus of the Energy field of innovation is on the external and internal energy supply of e-vehicles. For example new, high performance charging systems, concepts for supplying energy to the on-board electronics, or new solutions for automated parking and charging are being studied.
The communication with and between vehicles in electric mobility is a special challenge. In many cases the bidirectional exchange of data with the e-vehicle is indispensable. As such, in the ICT field of innovation in addition to intermodal e-mobility solutions and the integration of electric vehicles in a fleet and charging management system, also being studied are optimised operating range calculations and the integration of electric vehicles in a smart grid.
Automation and raising efficiency in production processes play an important role in the manufacture of e-vehicles. By implementing innovative production processes, an important contribution can be made to lowering production costs. For this purpose, current projects in the Production field of innovation are aimed at the development of automated and flexible solutions optimised for quality and cost, for mass production on an industrial scale.
