    Abstract

    AI4CSM: rewrite the auto industry’s competitive rules. Today, software, large computing power and advanced sensors, increasingly step into that role; they enable most modern innovations, from efficiency to connectivity, from autonomous driving to electrification and new mobility solutions. The AI4CSM project aims at developing the new ECS architecture for electric, connected and automated vehicles for the future mass market, enabled by embedded intelligence and functional integration for connected shared Mobility. AI4CSM will drive technology developments in the field of integrating new intelligent solutions in the propulsion, energy, perception, connectivity and brain domains of vehicles. Through this, AI4CSM will reinforce the user acceptance, affordability by convenience and services for the major transition to a diverse mobility. The outcome of AI4CSM is incorporating all the 4 major trends (electrification, standardization, automatization and digitalization) which foster the progress and define the transition of the automotive industry and mobility. The climate neutrality, zero pollution Europe, sustainable transport and circular economy will be driven by the outcome of AI4CSM.

    Abstract

    The project HiEFFICIENT will boost the design and development of the next generation’s highly efficient electrified vehicle systems, charging infrastructure and test-systems through efficient, highly integrated and modularized power electronics, securing Europe's top position in industry and research along the value chain of vehicle-, semiconductor- and test-system- design and manufacturing.HiEFFICIENT aims at the integration of wide-bandgap power electronics. This will be investigated on component (e.g., System on Chip, System In Package), subsystem (e.g. embedding of power electronics components in PCBs) and system level (e.g. traction inverter with on-board-charger) to achieve a significant volume reduction of up to 40% compared to the current state of the art, using wide-bandgap semiconductors.

    Abstract

    The project objective of the project HiPERFORM is based on the investigation of industrial applicability of high-performance semiconductors with wide-band gap materials in the field of Smart Mobility. For this purpose, a holistic approach is selected that includes the entire supply chain - from the manufacturer of semiconductors as well as power modules through suppliers of development methods and tools to the system manufacturer and ultimately the vehicle manufacturer. The integration of academic partners with a high level of competence in these domains completes this approach. On the other hand, specific requirements for power electronics are addressed in specific application areas, which include both power inverters in the vehicle, electrical charging modules inside and outside the vehicle, as well as the associated development and test systems.The high performance spectrum of wide-band gap semiconductors and the resulting potential for improvement and savings within the concrete applications of the electrified power train contribute to a substantial saving of CO2 in transport and thus support the achievement of the set climate targets in Europe. The jointly planned objectives and research activities will further strengthen European research and industry partners in the field of electronic components and systems.Besides Semiconductor manufacturing capabilities, the project requires also high capabilities in Cyber Physical Systems and Design Technologies and supports the domain Smart Mobility and Smart Energy as well.

    Abstract

    Movement is at the heart of any city. Urban mobility faces significant challenges from two global megatrends: growing urbanisation and ageing population. Light electric vehicles (EL-Vs) could represent a viable solution to traffic congestion and pollution in cities. However, their successful integration into the urban transport system requires a clear understanding of the individual consumer needs.By involving human science and transportation specialists, the STEVE partners have developed a framework to interpret these forces. Focus will be on mature cities of medium size (Torino: 800.000 inhabitants, Villach 60.000, Calvi 60.000, Venaria 35.000), where STEVE will generate data to support the design of next generation EL Vs, and provoke the mind-shift necessary for swift market penetration of them.The primary idea of STEVE is to implement and test a human-centric approach to electro-Mobility-as-a-Service (eMaaS), according to the Move2Me vision of the consortium. This will provide low-cost and financially sustainable EL V solutions and gamified services, to enhance users awareness, engagement and vehicle energy efficiency.A core item of STEVE is a low-cost electric quadricycle developed by a worldwide OEM in Turin, with start-of-production expected in 2018 at a market price of 8000. The quadricycle will integrate high-technology contents with respect to the current competitors, and will be pilot-tested, together with many other EL-Vs, during extensive demonstration phases in the four STEVE citiesSTEVE will guarantee a strong impact in terms of business development and jobs, and enhance the European competitiveness in the eMaaS sector while also leveraging Manufacturing.The consortium will also give a primary role to SMEs: while large enterprises will provide the underlying technologies, the services will be mainly designed and operated by SMEs, deeply involved in the local supply chains and adaptable to the specific customers needs.

    UE-funded research - JTI - ECSEL

    Abstract

    Automated driving is a disruptive technology which opens the door to future multi-billion markets providing business opportunities to value chains in automotive and semiconductor industry.The European industry has leading competitive strength in the development and manufacturing of highly reliable electro-mechanical systems. In order to preserve this capability Europe needs to setup European standards for high level control such as real-time computing or big data processing. In order to respond on the global challenge AutoDrive has gathered Europes leading semiconductor companies, suppliers, OEMs, and research institutes committed to create a pan-European eco-system, which has the critical mass to initiate standards and provides the components and subsystems for automated driving. Currently, even the most sophisticated vehicle automation technology on the road is not able to surpass human driving capabilities especially considering context awareness in any situation. Moreover, there is no common agreement on quantifiable dependability measures which hardware and embedded software have to achieve to allow safe automated driving for SAE Levels 3-5. AutoDrive aims for the design of (i) fail-aware (self-diagnostics), (ii) fail-safe, (iii) fail-operational (HW and SW redundancy) electronic components and systems architecture that enable the introduction of automated driving in all car categories. AutoDrive results will significantly contribute to safer and more efficient mobility. It will raise end-user acceptance and comfort by supporting drivers in highly challenging situations (active safety) as well as in regular driving situations. Combining both will reduce the number of road fatalities especially in rural scenarios and under adverse weather conditions. AutoDrive will contribute to Europes Vision Zero and to improved efficiency. This will sustain Leadership and even grow the market position of all AutoDrive partners.
