Smart and Safe Integration of Batteries in Electric Vehicles

The objective of SmartBatt is to develop and proof an innovative, multifunctional, light and safe concept of an energy storage system which is integrated in the pure electric car’s structure. The main challenges of this smart integration are the combination of lightweight design with a high safety level against all kinds of hazards, the optimization of functions and the intelligent design of interfaces to various on-board systems.

The expertise of all partners comprises complete vehicle competence, electrics, electronics, batteries, lightweight design, engineering, materials, testing and validation.

The consortium consists of four industrial (incl. two SMEs) and five research partners from five European countries. The exploitation is not limited to the partners but results will be distributed on different ways e.g. project website, papers or trainings as well as face-to-face workshops and meetings with OEMs.
