Increasing BEV Performance without Compromising Efficiency

Dr. Jörg Gindele, Senior Director Business Expansion & Transformation, Magna Powertrain Other than combustion engines, electric motors benefit from up- instead of downsizing. When intelligently combining them in an all-wheel drive, efficiency can be further increased, and especially by implementing a ‘complementary’ e-drive topology.

Interview: Full Car Computer Could be a Reality by 2027

Patrick Leteinturier

As electrification progresses, in-vehicle hardware and software architectures will evolve from distributed electronics to a “full car computer and zonal” model. We spoke with Patrick Leteinturier, Fellow Automotive Systems, Infineon Technologies, about these new architectures, new semiconductor materials, and the central role of “motion control”.

Vehicle Motion Control Through Advanced Wheel Torque Management

All-wheel drive electrification benefits dynamics, safety, efficiency, and convenience. Besides an advanced drive architecture, this requires consequent functional integration through software. In electric all-wheel drives (eAWD), functions are increasingly defined through software. Magna improves efficiency as well as drivability through the ‘Magna Vehicle Motion Control’. This software-based system includes a control loop with five elements:…
