WHO WE ARE
The virtual E-VOLVE (Electric Vehicle Optimized for Life, Value and Efficiency) Cluster is realizing and monitoring synergies between six projects from the GV-01 Horizon 2020 call to execute joint dissemination, exploitation and standardization activities.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 824311
ACHILES H2020 PROJECT
The objective of ACHILES is to develop Advanced Architectures CHassis/Traction concept for Future ElectrIc vehicLES.
ACHILES will enhance new parts and functionalities in a new E/E system architecture by developing and further integrating four technological concepts. Each of the four concepts are a technological paradigm shift and breakthrough on their own, but together they will significantly reduce weight, system complexity, and cost while increasing reliability, and user comfort and safety/security.
SELFIE H2020 PROJECT
SELFIE, a European research and innovation project, aims to develop a novel self-sustained compact battery system for next generation electrified vehicles (EVs).
A significant increase of user acceptance of EVs by enabling fast-charging, cost reductions and elimination of range anxiety compared to other propulsion technologies will be the user benefits of SELFIE.
FITGEN H2020 PROJECT
FITGEN aims at developing a functionally integrated e-axle ready for implementation in third generation electric vehicles. It is delivered at TRL and MRL 7 in all its components and demonstrated on an electric vehicle platform designed for the European market (A-segment reference platform). The e-axle is composed of a latest generation Buried-Permanent-Magnet Synchronous Machine, driven by a SiC-inverter and coupled with a high-speed transmission. It is complemented by a DC/DC-converter for high voltage operation of the motor in traction and for enabling super-fast charging of the 40 kWh battery (120 kW-peak) plus an integrated AC/DC on-board charger. The e-axle also includes a breakthrough cooling system which combines the water motor/inverter circuit with transmission oil.
CEVOLVER H2020 PROJECT
CEVOLVER takes a user-centric approach for optimising the development and operation of electric vehicles and uses cutting edge technologies, components and systems for achieving the ambitious targets of the call topic. In both cases, the project exploits opportunities of connectivity to computational capabilities of big data.
SYS2WHEEL H2020 PROJECT
Would you like clean air in the city? How can we get rid of noise and exhausts from delivery vans in the city?
Addressing the issues of urbanisation, transportation, and rising greenhouse gas emissions is one of the biggest challenges of the future. In particular, the electrification of road transport is high on the political agenda of all major world economies.
We in sys2WHEEL give answers to these questions by developing sustainable city logistics and improving mobility and quality of life of European citizens.
EVC1000 H2020 PROJECT
The Electric Vehicle Components for 1000km daily trips (EVC 1000) project brings together ten participants from industrial and academic backgrounds to provide innovative and mass-production optimised components enabling the efficient integration of powertrain and chassis systems, which will increase Electric Vehicles (EV) range and user acceptance. Given the recent progress related to in-wheel motors technology, and the benefits of in-wheel architectures in terms of active safety, packaging and drivability, EVC1000 focuses on in-wheel drivetrain layouts, as well as a wheel-centric integrated propulsion system and EV manager.
TELL H2020 PROJECT
The TELL project addresses the optimisation and large-scale manufacturing of low and medium voltage electric powertrain solutions, with focus on high efficiency, compact packaging and low cost. Three main applications are targeted:
Small-to-medium segment electric cars
Hybrid electric cars with a low voltage add-on electric propulsion system
The lightweight urban mobility sector, e.g., electric quadricycles
