Running an electric vehicle efficiently means avoiding frictional braking whenever possible. Deceleration only by the regeneration mode of the electric engine is sufficient for most of the standard vehicle use [...]
Within the ACHILES project, low-fidelity models and control strategies have been developed for a generic representation of the Chassis systems. They will be used in the simulation environment to optimize [...]
Prior to the physical integration into the demonstrator, a digital twin (see image below) of the overall vehicle using high fidelity models is being integrated on the ACHILES virtual simulation [...]
The ACHILES partners defined 52 tests for components and subsystems. The tests goals are to validate: the new wheel and brake concept; the central computing platform; the vehicle dynamics; and [...]
The project coordinator VUB will present an overview on the ACHILES innovations at the H2020 road transport research results conference on 1 December, in the session between 9:30 and 12:30. [...]
ACHILES project partner TECNALIA represented the project consortium at the GoMobility on 11 March. ACHILES was part of the GoMobility’s poster exhibition and presentation sessions. GoMobility is a meeting point [...]
The full requirements and specifications for the 3rd generation ACHILES Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) have been defined. The brake and drivetrain were designed for the special requirements of EVs and [...]
The ACHILES consortium held its General Assembly (GA) meeting on 29 & 30 January in Frankfurt, Germany, hosted by CONTINENTAL. During the GA the project’s progress was presented and [...]
