EXPERTISE IN ELECTRIC MOBILITY - page 146

The Heilbronn University of Applied Sciences
has dedicated its research to the examination
and optimisation of future-proof electric mo-
bility and conducts practical studies in this
field.
The ‘Electric Mobility in Urban-Regional Areas’
project, for example, examines applications
for electric vehicles and related infrastructure
requirements. The Heilbronn University of Ap-
plied Sciences has therefore operated a bat-
tery-driven test car for research purposes
since 2010, funded by the future investment
programme of the State of Baden-Wuerttem-
berg. This vehicle has sufficient safety, range
and suitability for regional commuter and
highway driving and related testing.
The sponsored Emission-free Range Extend-
ing (EREX) project was launched to bypass the
slow acceptance of electric vehicles due to
insufficient battery capacity. Some vehicle
manufacturers are currently offering addition-
al internal combustion engines as range ex-
tending units. The EREX project investigates
how the range of electric vehicles can be en-
larged by mechanical flywheel storage units.
Further university research focuses on an
all-electric drive-train testbed and electromo-
bility for bicycles.
