The CEVOLVER project started on 1 November 2018 and will run for 4½ years.
The project is funded by the European Commission in the Research and Innovation Action Programme.
10 Organisations from 6 different countries work together to develop battery-electric vehicle that are usable for comfortable long day trips with an affordable battery.
- Ensure a leap forward in user’s confidence, functionalities and energy efficiency of future EVs.
- Realise novel connected functionalities as reliable range prediction, Eco-routing and Eco-driving integrated together with Assured & Fast Charging;
- Achieve significant energy savings and enable long(er) distance trips with minimal additional travel time due to charging;
- Leverage user convenience and user’s confidence and largely increase the trust in future EVs
- Ensure the affordability of future electric vehicles by a user centric development approach
- Improve affordability and consider actual vehicle usage patterns to verify the design specification of the components;
- Refine or derive methodologies for supporting electric vehicle(subsystem) simulation models;
- Provide innovative solutions to increase sales volumes and to open up further cost reductions in mass production.
- Validation of advanced components and systems, novel connected control strategies and functionalities
- Implement & integrate selected components and systems, the connected control strategies and functionalities into an early assessment prototyping vehicles (BOSCH) & demonstrators (CRF, FORD).
- Assessment of the impact of the technical advancements of CEVOLVER and their applicability in different EV types and vehicle classes
- Assess the impact of CEVOLVER innovations in terms of energy saving potential, user experience and market potential (incl. cost reduction in mass production);
- Prove the feasibility of ensuring durability and lifetime of specific vehicle components through use of optimal connected control strategies.
- Results – an overview of all reports to be submitted to the EC during the project runtime
