The XILforEV paper “Connected and Shared X-in-the-Loop Technologies for Electric Vehicle Design” is published in the World Electric Vehicle Journal as a part of the Special Issue A World of E MOTION—Selected Papers from the 32nd International Electric Vehicles Symposium and Exhibition (Lyon, France). The paper can be downloaded here.
XILforEV consortium has established a partnership with the Russian State Scientific Research Center NAMI. Both parties are cooperating on the topic of hardware-in-the-loop tests for the electric vehicle cooling systems. The NAMI Center is working on this subject within the framework of H2020 Joint EU-Russia Call.
Central scientific research automobile and automotive engine institute NAMI is the biggest Scientific and Engineering Center of the Russian automotive industry. The scientists and design engineers of the institute were directly involved in the creation, testing and putting into the mass production of practically all Russian vehicles, from the first passenger cars to heavy-duty trucks, such as KAMAZ, MAZ, KrAZ, BelAZ and other. One of the priority lines is R&D activities of the institute is the scientific basis of the development of the guiding documents for the national automobile industry, as well as analysis and forecasting trends of the industry evolution, including production volumes, number of sales and growth of the vehicle fleet.
The project article is published in IEEE Transportation Electrification Community Newsletters.
The project kick-off meeting took place on 15 January 2019 at Tenneco HQ in Brussels. The consortium approved R&D and dissemination plan for 2019. All working groups for XILforEV Use Cases are identified to start successful collaboration.
The XILforEV consortium launches the project towards novel X-in-the-loop development and testing technologies for electric vehicles. This project was selected by the European Commission under Horizon 2020 Call LC-GV-02-2018 “Virtual product development and production of all types of electrified vehicles and components”. XILforEV begins to create several connected experimental environments for effcient and rapid electric vehicle design.
