E-VOLVE Cluster Newsletter

The first 2024 edition of the E-VOLVE Cluster newsletter is out and we are inviting our network to have a read and register for the E-VOLVE Cluster webinar, taking place on March 15. You can find all information in the newsletter and of course on the E-VOLVE Cluster site. 

EM-TECH project meeting No. 3

It was already the third time, the EM-Tech consortium got together – this time in Torino, Italy. Co-hosted by Politecnico di TorinoCars@Polito and Ideas & Motion, the participants came together discussing the status of the project, the next steps and – as you can see from the pictures – the meeting included a tour to the testing facilities used within the project.

Thanks a lot to our hosts and organizers Nicola AmatiClaudio Romano, Barbara Almond, SauliusMarius Pakštys and all other colleagues involved. We are looking forward to meeting you all again online and in person. 

Sustainable Drives: Exploring Innovations in Green Vehicle Propulsion

We are looking back to a great event together with the projects MAXIMA, VOLTCAR and HEFT and can now share with you the presentation given by Eric Armengaud on behalf of the EM-Tech project. It was a great event and we received many interesting questions from the participants; thanks a lot to organizers, presenters and participants.

Please enjoy the video and don’t hesitate to come back to us in case of questions.

Report on the EM-Tech integrated electric motors, electric drives, and associated controllers

Let’s have a closer look at one of our public deliverables and the work performed there!


The target of this deliverable is to define the basic sizes (continuous and peak torque
and power ratings, mass, expected available packaging envelopes) of the investigated components and
systems for case studies. Furthermore, a set of integrated EM-TECH corner modules and on-board electric
drive solutions for electric vehicles are defined to cover the widest possible range of vehicle segments.
This deliverable also describes the associated machine control such as the cooling control and the inverter
control for the new machines, and the vehicle controls to exploit the benefits to vehicle performance
brought by the new machines, including the wheel slip control, the motor regenerative braking and
braking blending, and the anti-jerk control.

Interested in the full deliverable? Don’t hesitate to head over to the document in our results section!

TU Ilmenau Research Night – Practical insights into use of X-in-the-loop techniques in the domain of automotive engineeringTU Ilmenau Research Night –

Marius Heydrich from TU Ilmenau was presenting the EM-Tech project at the TU Ilmenau Research Night. Have a read on his report of this evening.

“As everyone knows, a modern vehicle is a quiet complex constellation of hard- and software components. Especially electric vehicles have more electrically driven systems than those with ICE, which increases the number of control units and software code lines as well. Therefore, new approaches are needed to accelerate the development and testing of next generation EVs. Highly common are the so-called X-in-the-loop techniques, making it possible to investigate systems and components in the virtual area before testing them in hybrid or under real-world conditions.

This approach was successfully used for vehicle and control development in the XILforEV – Horizon 2020 Project and EVC1000 Project and is now a key part in the EM-TECH project. To communicate the project and its scope to a broad audience, I participated in the Ilmenau Science night that took place on Saturday, 1st July 2023 at Technische Universität Ilmenau.

Not even the light rain on that evening stopped hundreds of people of all ages from visiting the ThIMo I building to get information about the current research activities and latest results. To tackle the weather, we moved parts of the programme into the workshop at short notice to allow visitors to attend dry. Anyway, what is a better background for speeches about automotive engineering than staples of car tires? 😁

With speeches of approximately 20 minutes, me and other researchers of the Automotive Engineering Group intended to make our research visible and understandable for everyone. In my speech, I explained the X-in-the-loop approach, which was the perfect framework to also communicate the EM-TECH project to the people and to further discuss the background.

In my opinion, the event was perfect for promoting the project and its recognition by a broad public audience. Hopefully, the next Ilmenau Science Night in 2025 will be the framework for more detailed discussions!””

Marius, thank you very much for your great presentation and for sharing your thoughts with us!

EM-TECH and E-VOLVE

💡 As EM-TECH project we are now a member to the E-VOLVE cluster. 

The cluster has the aim to 
📍 connect parallel R&D activities in complementary areas 
📍 implement a higher potential produced by intersectoral cooperation and to 
📍 execute joint dissemination and exploitation activities. 

Read more on the cluster, its founding members and stay tuned for the updates on the E-VOLVE LinkedIN page.

We are looking forward to the cooperation with the cluster partner projects and will keep you updated on these.
