Fail-safe and efficient electric drive system for robot taxis
The AnRox project addresses intelligent fail-safe drive systems for future automated vehicles as a basis for safe operation, high user acceptance and economic business models for providers. The aim is to research and validate innovative fail-safe drive systems for the lead application robot taxi, in which additional costs are compensated for by increased user and provider benefits. This is achieved by a closely interlinked approach across all relevant system levels, starting from the system context (use case & vehicle level) to the topology (interaction of drive & chassis) and component level (on-board energy network, power electronics & machine). Furthermore, degrees of freedom of multi-motor drives and intelligent diagnostic concepts are utilised with AI-based methods. The methods and results developed are generally transferable to all automated electric vehicles and are demonstrated and validated on a continuous validation chain from the component test bench to the vehicle demonstrator.
