The EVC-1000 research project of the HORIZON 2020 funding platform works on solutions for future generation of battery electric vehicles (BEV) to enhance their efficiency, performance and mileage. Amongst others, a special focus is given to the brake system of BEV.
Beside a brief description of the project (including project goals), a brake-by-wire (BBW) approach is presented and described for those BEV. This includes the general layout of the system as well as the technical and technological description.
The latter is oriented on the defined requirements of a demonstrator vehicle, which allows also to derive the relevant specifications. As a result, it is intended to find an appropriate dimensioning of the brake system (including the foundation brake) for BEV to avoid over-sized components. Another focus deals with the integration of the BBW.
Finally, results of some preliminary vehicle road testing activities are introduced to create a base for benchmark analyses.
