OBELICS addresses the urgent need for new tools to enable multi-level modelling and testing of EV and their components in order to deliver more efficient vehicle designs faster while supporting modularity to enable mass production and hence improved affordability. The overall objective of OBELICS is to develop a systematic and comprehensive framework for the design, development and testing of advanced e-powertrains and EVs line-ups, to reduce development efforts by 40% while improving efficiency of the e-drivetrain by 20% and increase safety by a factor of 10 using OBELICS advanced heterogeneous model-based testing methods and tools; as well as scalable and easy to parameterize real-time models.

Project Collaboration

The OBELICS project will collaboration with other GV 07 projects, such as HiFi-Elements and DemoBase, for “Standardization” activities with regards to FMI/FMU and Battery safety standards.
Aim is to create synergies and reduce overlap for these activities.
