  • March 2019: Safety concepts ready

    Developed a cost-efficient methodology and strategy for assessing the functional safety and reliability of battery systems, e-motor, braking system and inverters of the OBELICS’ drive train. For more information, please click here

  • February 2019: Objective metrics defined for all use cases

    The ultimate goal of OBELICS is the development of a systematic and comprehensive framework for the design, development and testing of advanced e-powertrains and EVs line-ups. This framework will allow the reduction of development efforts by 40%, while improving efficiency of the e-drivetrain by 20% and increase safety by a factor of 10. 17 exemplary use cases form together 4 use case clusters, which introduce industrial and prospective, relevant engineering activities, to develop, proof and demonstrate new methods and tools along the entire e-vehicle development process. OBELICS partners have completed the definition of the use cases and metrics that can be considered in order to measure the achievement of the project impact. For more information, please click here.

  • September 2018: toy models ready

    Completed description of new models, tools and methods supporting vehicle-level electric powertrain integration studies in a flexible and fast process. These development tools will support new powertrain concepts, multiple configurations of physical and/or functional models and vehicle-level processing scalability to cover detailed to real-time compliant simulation, by using “toy models” as close as possible of the final demonstrators to early validate results maturity.

  • May 2018: Optimization of test procedures complete

    Test methodologies from previous and current battery characterization procedures of partners were developed. Aim is to standardize test protocols among partners. For more information, please click here

     

  • April 2018: first F2F meeting with HiFI-Elements project team

    The topics discussed in this collaboration emphasize on the standardization of the interfaces of e-components in the powertrain

  • March 2018: review of lithium-ion batteries complete

    OBELICS has investigated different international (ISO & IEC) and European standards (JARI & SAE) regarding Lithium-ion batteries. For more information, please click here

  • October 2017 – Project Kick-off

    As per 1st October 2017 the OBELICS project starts. For the next 3 years the 19 consortium partners will work together 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.
