1 Road Competitiveness Vehicle design Passenger & Freight CAD of external modular bus and design of coupling-decoupling system EBSF European Bus System of the Future The study considered an articulated bus with a modular structure in order to permit a complete flexibility. The whole vehicle system is composed by one tractor and two trailers with two axles and is provided with a steering system, acting on all the wheel FP7
2 Road Competitiveness CAE and real life crash tests Passenger Design, crash simulations and real life simulation of an lightweight body designed for EV powertrain WIDE-MOB Building blocks concepts for efficient and safe multiuse urban electrical vehicles WIDE-MOB designed building block concepts for future EVs based on lightweight architecture, distributed drivetrains and low aerodynamic drag. The design was tested by a prototype for crash worthiness FP7
3 Road Competitiveness Electric vehicle design Passenger Design, simulation and crash test of lightweight EV ALIVE Advanced High Volume Affordable Lightweighting for Future Electric Vehicles ALIVE designed and manufactured an vehicle frame in order to be lightweight and for high volume production FP7
4 Road Competitiveness Electric vehicle design Freight Vehicle design using a modular structural architecture for electric light trucks or vans (ELTV’s) focusing on the improvement of passive safety OPTIBODY Optimized Structural components and add-ons to improve passive safety in new Electric Light Trucks and Vans (ELTVs) OPTIBODY developed new structural concept of ELTVs which is composed of a chassis, a cabin and a number of specific add-ons focusing on new market segments FP7
5 Road Competitiveness Electric vehicle design Passenger 1) Vehicle design and development of a 4 seater small lightweight hybrid metal composite chassis electric vehicle. 2) Hybrid composite chassis using carbon fiber sillbeams with steel tubular trusses and folded metal sheets AMBER-ULV Automotive Mechatronic Baseline for Electric Resilient Ultra Light Vehicle AMBER-ULV project aimed to close the gap between heavy quadricycles and M1 category vehicles in terms of safety and performances, while maintaining a convenient and affordable price to quality ratio by designing a prototype 4 WD EV FP7
6 Road Competitiveness Electric vehicle design Freight Design of an EV van using a sandwich chassis DELIVER Design of Electric LIght Vans for Environment-impact Reduction DELIVER designed and constructed of an EV van for lower environmental impact FP7
7 Road Competitiveness Vehicle hybridisation Freight Hybrid electric truck using energy saving intelligent cruise control and electrified systems CONVENIENT Complete Vehicle Energy-saving Technologies for Heavy-Trucks CONVENIENT demonstrated on 2 prototypes trucks the use of hybrid powertrains for long haul usage including 40 tone trailer FP7
8 Road Competitiveness Autonomous vehicles Passenger Design and real life pilot trial of an EV autonomous small bus CITYMOBIL2 Cities demonstrating cybernetic mobility CITYMOBIL2 designed and tested in real life an autonomous small bus without driver and capacity of 10 people capable of speeds up to 20kmh FP7
9 Road Competitiveness Electric vehicle design Freight Design of a modular electric Light Delivery Van for lightweight, 24 hour operation and loading and unloading goods V-FEATHER InnoVative Flexible Electric Transport V-FEATHER designed a modular light weight light commercial vehicle that would be capable of running 24 hours either through on road charging or fast charging based on a in-hub electric motor concept. The concept also envisages battery size reduction and l FP7
10 Road Competitiveness Electric vehicle design Passenger Design and modelling of third generation passenger EV ELVA Advanced Electric Vehicle Architectures ELVA evaluated criteria that third generation EVs should have and based on a public contest design and a secondary ELVA vehicle design sketched and modelled an EV that met these requirements FP7
