Our Motivation

The automotive sector is currently undergoing a major transformation that is in particular affecting the drive technology. Electrification is gaining enormous relevance as one of the key technologies to reduce or avoid emissions. Regardless of the specific technology, a steadily increasing complexity of both the hardware and the associated control algorithms is leading to the evolution of modern drives towards software-intensive, embedded mechatronic systems.

Future vehicles will differ significantly from today's concepts, not only in terms of drive technology but also in terms of connectivity and autonomous driving functions. These factors in turn have a major impact on vehicle propulsion systems. For example, predictive information is used for an efficiency-optimized operation with minimal emissions. Previously separate domains are now experiencing strong interactions, that are specifically addressed by the teaching and research area.
