The G212 laboratory is concerned with fundamental and current questions regarding electromobility and adaptive systems. The broad term electromobility generally refers to mobility with electric drives, although the degree of electrification may vary.
Goals and idea
The work in the laboratory focuses not only on production and test procedures for the electrified powertrain, but also on the most resource-efficient operation management possible.
Learning-capable systems are understood to be methods that are capable of acquiring knowledge on their own. The increasingly complex applications of our time are characterized by uncertainties, which means that often only suboptimal solutions are possible. Here, the G212 laboratory is concerned with application-driven methods for the development, production and operation of vehicles. Powerful tools from mathematics, computer science and engineering are used.
The G212 laboratory is part of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and promotes the education of students in the above-mentioned areas of electromobility and adaptive systems. An interesting aspect here is the close interlocking of teaching with application-oriented research. The research groups working in the laboratory belong to the Institute for Innovative Mobility and Resource Efficient Drive Technology (MOREA). The application-oriented research projects are mainly carried out in cooperation with large to medium-sized industrial partners as well as with research institutions and partner universities.

Systems capable of learning
Due to increasingly complex applications, often only imprecise models are available. Physical quantities are only roughly known, there is a lack of precise knowledge about a process or one does not know when and where possible errors can occur. This is where the research group supports Learning-Efficient Systems and develops and researches application-driven methods for the development, production and operation of vehicles. Powerful tools from mathematics, computer science and engineering are used.
- Vehicle Parameter Estimation
- System identification of strength test stands
- Predictive operating strategy
