KIT and Schaeffler working on new energy-efficient assisted steering system for EVs

KIT and Schaeffler working on new energy-efficient assisted steering system for EVs 30 March 2015 Karlsruhe Institute for Technology (KIT) and Schaeffler are developing a new energy-efficient assisted steering system for EVs under the project “Intelligent Assisted Steering System with Optimum Energy Efficiency for Electric Vehicles (e²-Lenk)” subsidized by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF). In conventional vehicles, the internal combustion engine supplies on-board systems such as assisted steering, with the requisite energy. In electric vehicles, this energy comes from the battery and also reduces the range as a result. In the KIT and Schaeffler project, the steering system is assisted in an energy-efficient manner by intelligent control of the drive torques transmitted to the individual wheels. The project is being sponsored by BMBF with a sum ...
