December 2021 - Accepted journal paper
A paper by University of Surrey, titled “Predictive anti-jerk and traction control for V2X connected electric vehicles with central motor and open differential” has been accepted in "IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology", which is a quartile 1 journal for automotive engineering.
The paper discusses pre-emptive vehicle controllers which can increase passenger comfort and reduce wheel slip when the vehicle encounters a low friction patch on the road. The download link will be available soon.
November 2021 - EGVI Project Portfolio
The EGVI Project Portfolio 2018 - 2020 has been published. Multi-Moby is proud to be part of the EGVI (European Green Cars and Green Vehicles Initiative) partnership.
November 2021 - General assembly
The Multi-Moby general assembly was held on 9-10 November 2021, in I-FEVS, Turin, Italy. This was our first face-to-face meeting since the coronavirus pandemic.
October 2021 - Vehicle testing
The Multi-Moby vehicle testing has started in I-FEVS. This includes testing the vehicle on a rolling bench, as well as a test track as seen in the photo to the right.
September 2021 - E-VOLVE
The Multi-Moby project is now part of the Electric Vehicle Optimized for Life, Value and Efficiency (E-VOLVE) cluster, which involves eight projects from the GV-01 Horizon 2020 for joint dissemination, exploitation and standardization activities.
July 2021 - Pre-emptive vehicle stability
A pre-emptive stability control function has been successfully tested on the ZEBRA vehicle by University of Surrey. This involves pre-emptive braking based on nonlinear model predictive control when the speed is too high for an upcoming road curvature.
December 2020 - Project kick-off
The Multi-Moby kick-off meeting took place on 15-16 December 2020. Due to coronavirus pandemic, it was conducted online with a teleconference.
