Work Packages

WP 1 - Management
  • Scientific, technical, administrative and financial maintenance and coordination of the project.
  • Timely completion of all work packages and tasks and successful conclusion of the activity.
WP2 - Powertrain Configuration and Control Architecture Specifications
  • Multi-disciplinary investigation and definition of the specifications related to the powertrain in the context of on-road and off-road mobility.
  • Specification of the global architecture of the Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) system and its interaction with the Energy Management System (EMS).
WP3 - Advanced Simulation Studies of FEV Dynamics
  • Development of advanced vehicle simulators for the optimisation of FEV dynamics in on- and off-road conditions, and for the optimisation of the overall vehicle energy efficiency.
