Analysis of Safety Relevant Wheel Individual Brake Torque Requirements for City EVs

Name: Mr. Tobias Loss

Presentation Title: Analysis of Safety Relevant Wheel Individual Brake Torque Requirements for City EVs (EB2021-IBC-002)

Session: Brake Control, Friday 21st May 2021, 09:00 - 10:40 (Central European Summer Time - CEST)

What do you find most interesting about the topic of your presentation?

For me it is fascinating to develop novel braking systems and topologies that are dedicated for electric vehicles by challenging the state of the art and rethinking the needs and requirements.

When discussing this topic with industry peers, what question are you most frequently asked? How do you answer it?

The main question being asked: What kind of vehicle class is the one you are targeting?

Answer: The focus of the work is generating potential cost savings on an overall vehicle level for urban vehicles with lower dynamic requirements. Eliminating the rear friction brakes for e.g. sports cars doesn’t seem feasible in near future.

Who do you think will be most interested in your presentation, and who would you most like to ask questions about it?

The topic might be interesting for developers of vehicle dynamics control as well as scientific community focussing on braking systems in general. My work may affect the overall vehicle development on a high system level, due to possible impact on other vehicle systems such as drivetrain.

What specific topics or technology are you hoping to see in other presentations or in the exhibition?

I am looking forward to see interesting contributions regarding braking components and control in electric vehicles.

About Tobias Loss.

My name is Tobias Loss and I am a PhD researcher in the vehicle mechatronics and dynamics group at central research campus of Robert Bosch GmbH in Renningen, Germany. We are providing future actuators and assistance systems for vehicle motion. My research focus lays on novel braking systems for future electric and autonomous vehicles as well as their impact on vehicle dynamics.

My engineering career started with studies of mechanical engineering and automotive development at Technical University Braunschweig, Germany, specializing on chassis systems. In addition to the academic studies I gathered working experience in the field of vehicle dynamic simulation of future steering systems.
