Connected Electric Vehicle Optimized for Life, Value, Efficiency and Range
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.
Firstly, as a source of data to support defining use cases that represent typical driving patterns and functionality. This will be used for developing optimal E/E architectures and rightsizing of components and optimising control strategies.
Secondly, a dynamic connection to big data and computational capabilities in the cloud enables optimising the EV’s energy and thermal management level. It leads to a Reliable Range Prediction, Eco-routing and Eco-driving as well as novel functionalities like Smart Fast Charging and Assured Charging.
About the CEVOLVER project
The overall approach and concept of the CEVOLVER project comprises the following conceptual elements: a user centric development approach in combination with connectivity and advanced control strategies. Together, this leads to optimal EV powertrain architectures, rightsizing and implementation of new/advanced components and systems and connected control features and functionalities. In terms of consumer’s values, it brings reliability, user confidence and affordability in electro-mobility.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement no. 824295.
