efficient and safe

Emission-free mobility and accident-free driving are two visionary aims at the Institute of Meas-urement, Control and Microtechnology (Institut für Mess-, Regel- und Mikrotechnik) at Ulm University. Research and development of modern methods for measurement, control, signal processing and (real-time) optimisation are done as a basis to reach these aims. These methods are applied to applications in the areas of electric mobility, driver assistance and mechatronic systems. We attach great importance to practical applicability in our research in that we use our own test vehicles, for example a four-wheel-drive electric car and an Elmoto moped.The algorithmic focus of the electric mobility workgroup is the data-based derivation of complex system and component models suitable for ECU application within model-based control and diagnosis algorithms. Examples are the model-based on-board diagnosis of fuel cells and lithium-ion batteries as well as the monitoring of electrical machines. Another focus is laid on the control of vehicle dynamics and energy management, not only for electrically powered passenger cars with different power-train configurations, but also for all-wheel-drive electric motorbikes. In addition, as a member of the "Cluster Nutzfahrzeuge Schwaben" (commercial vehicles cluster), the electrifi cation of main and auxiliary drives in special purpose and commercial vehicles also represents a primary concern.
