Our Electric Vehicle Research for Energy Efficiency published in IEEE Access

Our research on Torque Allocation Modelling for Electric Vehicle was recently published Open Access on IEEE Access. The paper proposes a new torque allocation (TA) model emphasizing the wheel load variation due to the passenger occupancy payload. A light-duty vehicle model is developed along with the occupancy payload arrangement and a dynamic tire-road friction estimationRead more about Our Electric Vehicle Research for Energy Efficiency published in IEEE Access[…]

Journal Article Published in IEEE Access

Our research just published Open Access on IEEE Access. The paper investigated the efficacy of an optimised fuzzy logic controller for real-time swing-up control and stabilisation to a rigidly coupled twin-armed inverted pendulum system. The application of this proposed control algorithm may find its way in many personal electric mobility applications. This international collaboration includedRead more about Journal Article Published in IEEE Access[…]
