The Research Institute of Automotive Engineer-
ing and Vehicle Engines Stuttgart (FKFS) is an
independent institute and carries out research
and development projects for the international
automobile and supplier industry and closely co-
operates with the Institute for Internal Combus-
tion Engines and Automotive Engineering (IVK) of
Stuttgart University.
In e-mobility, FKFS follows a holistic and inter-
disciplinary approach in the areas of information
technology, power engineering and vehicle tech-
nology. Innovative component and system test
stands, a comprehensive subject pool, the latest
charging infrastructure and an electric vehicle
fleet allow automobile research at the highest
level. Especially the Stuttgart driving simulator,
the largest and most powerful system of its kind
at a European research institution, is available
for research projects in the field of electric
mobility. Its core competencies cover the areas
of drive-trains, driver assistance systems, simu-
lations and tests.
Public research projects (examples):
Energetic optimisation of operating strategies for
electric vehicles; ZuSE: reliability and safety of
electric vehicles; ELENA 2: electrification up-
grade of the drive-trains of commercial vehicles;
BiPoLplus: bidirectional inductive position-toler-
ant charging of electric vehicles; DiNA: diagnosis
of hybrid and electric vehicles; EFA 2014/2: en-
ergy-efficient driving 2014 phase II; full vehicle
simulation of a battery-powered electric vehicle.
