Consortium submits ideas to make vehicle electronics simpler, more robust
The 3Car development consortium expects half of the newly registered vehicles to be electric, always on and / or automated by 2030. Now the group has submitted its final report. The way there: domain computers are to replace the monofunctional ECUs scattered throughout the vehicle.

The drive motor

Together with Siemens, 3Ccar has realized an electric drive with a higher power density than comparable products. Thanks to its compact structure, it enables high vehicle performance in demanding installation spaces. In addition, the new drive motor is more efficient and offers greater reliability.

Routing for electric vehicles

OTH Amberg-Weiden university developed a special vehicle-to-network (V2N) communication system for electric vehicles. The aim was to provide a basic service capable of handling the entire route planning process, using a server-based route planning system in road networks combined with information on charging stations. Using this server-controlled routing system, it was possible to determine specially tailored and optimised routes for electric vehicles.

Responsible for project management and coordination within the research group was chipmaker Infineon Technologies. The project was funded by the European Union, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and other participating states as well as partners from industry. The total project volume amounted to €54 million. 3Ccar started in 2015 and lasted 41 months. The eleven German partners now present the research results in their own final report.

Among others, chipmakers NXP, Murata, On Semiconductor and STMicroelectronics were involved in the project. Daimler and BMW participated from the vehicle manufacturers' stock. Technology companies such as TTTech, Qinetiq, Siemens, the automotive suppliers Valeo and AVL as well as the research institutes Fraunhofer, VTT, Virtual Vehicle and OTH Amber-Weiden university were also involved.
