Goal: XILforEV project strives for developing a complex experimental environment for designing electric vehicles (EV) and their systems, which connects test platforms and setups from different domains and situated in different geographical locations. The domains under discussion can cover (but not limited by) hardware-in-the-loop test rigs, dynamometers, material analysers, and other variants of experimental infrastructures. Real-time running of specific test scenarios simultaneously on (i) all connected platforms/devices with (ii) the same real-time models of objects and operating environments allows exploring interdependencies between various physical processes that can be hardly identified or investigated in the process of EV development.

Activities: The XILforEV project brings together seven complementary participants from industry and academia, to address the new design and testing tool for electric vehicles and their systems. The activity will include novel techniques for connecting experimental labs and dedicated case studies for designing EV motion control and EV fail-safe control. In addition, the project also addresses the development of high-confidence, real-time capable models with automatic validation using experimental data.
