The CEVOLVER project has started on 1 November 2018! The aim of this blog is to give a step-by-step update about the progress of the CEVOLVER project.
Setting the scene for a connected energy and thermal management concept – by Mark Engelen (FEV)The connected management functionalities make use of several connectivity features to optimise the route selection, driving behavior, charging stops and charging process. This is made possible due to the cloud-based data and the cloud computing capabilities to perform resource intensive calculations that cannot be otherwise implemented on a Vehicle Control Unit (VCU). The main activities... Read more
Connectivity interface for simulation by Antonio Sciaretta (IFPEN)Within the CEVOLVER project an important role is played by advanced strategies that operate testing the prototype demonstrators using connectivity as sources of real time information. The results of the discussions between the partners are available. In short we can say that the advanced features such as optimal thermal management, eco-routing with assured charging functionality,... Read more
Concept & ApproachThe overall approach and concept of the CEVOLVER project, shown in Figure 1.1, 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...

Project ObjectivesCEVOLVER 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. To learn more about the key objectives of the... Read more
