Sustainable mobility is a core concern for all industrial players and public authorities. It affects both our lifestyles and our economy, as well as facing major changes, such as electrification, connectivity and driverless vehicles. To prepare for these changes, it is essential to fully understand how new technology will be used in future mobility, together with the related business models and issues surrounding social acceptability.

EVS (Electric Vehicles Symposium) is the leading international event to address all these issues. The various components of electric mobility will be on display; from markets to vehicle battery technology (hybrid and hydrogen fuel cell); from motorcycles to trucks, and from charging facilities to related services and public policy.

MOBI’s team will, of course, be there as well! Several of our researchers will present their paper:

  • Majid Vafaeipour: Optimized energy management for a HEV equipped with an electrical variable transmission system
  • Mahdi Soltani & Tom Turcksin: Super capacitor electrical and lifetime model development for low frequency current applications
  • Sajib Chakraborty: Scalable and accurate modelling of a WBG-based bidirectional DC/DC converter for electric drivetrains
  • Nikolaas Van den Steen: Can speed pedelecs really fulfil the mobility needs of daily commuters?
  • Maitane Berecibar: Battery health estimation in a vehicle-to-grid scenario
  • Anas SyedLife cycle assessment of electrification of heavy-duty vehicle
  • Maeva Philippot: Water footprint of the manufacturing of a traction lithium ion battery pack
  • Boud Verbrugge: Development of an energy managing strategy and sizing algorithm for a nanogrid parking lot for electric vehicles
  • Quentin De Clerck: Agent-based model for electric vehicle adoption in Brussels
  • Duong Tran: Co-design approach and optimization for plug-in hybrid buses
  • Philippe Lebeau: Impact of increasing diesel prices: Will electric vehicles become an economic solution for freight transport?
  • Mohamed El Baghdadi: Energy management control for electric drivetrains with multiple energy storage units
  • Tom Turcksin: Battery weight optimization for hovering aircraft
  • Peter Van den Bossche: Conductive charging of electric vehicles: Developments at the low and high end of the power spectrum
