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 mod-
ern 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 elec-
tric 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 com-
plex system and component models suitable for
ECU application within model-based control and
diagnosis algorithms. Examples are the mod-
el-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 con-
figurations, but also for all-wheel-drive electric
motorbikes. In addition, as a member of the
‘Cluster Nutzfahrzeuge Schwaben’ (commercial
vehicles cluster), the electrification of main and
auxiliary drives in special purpose and commer-
cial vehicles also represents a primary concern.
