With elimination of bulky transmissions, driveshafts, and differentials in EV’s powertrain, in-wheel motor (IWM) has obvious advantages of high efficiency, driving dynamics, active safety and space saving. This efficient 15kW control system for IWM provides motor position sensor fault-tolerant operation and anti-slip function.
Electric vehicles with traditional single, central motor and drivetrain bring adverse impact to efficiency and passenger space.
Automotive Platforms and Application Systems (APAS) R&D Centre was established in 2006 by the Innovation and Technology Commission of HKSAR Government and hosted by the Hong Kong Productivity Council. The Centre undertakes R&D programmes as well as commercialising R&D results in collaboration with industry, universities and technology institutes for the development of the APAS technology. Since its establishment, APAS R&D Centre has carried out over 100 R&D projects and focus on 3 R&D areas, Green Transportation, Smart Mobility and Intelligent Systems. To facilitate greater synergy and further enhance cost effectiveness, APAS is form part of the Hong Kong Productivity Council with effect from 1 Nov 2012.
