Combining the safety of energy storage systems with high efficiency and reliability is a key issue facing the automotive industry. This SAFIR cluster supplements SAFIR with safety-related issues in the field of electromobility. In addition to the development and testing of safe battery systems and their protection in the event of an accident, this also includes questions regarding the malfunction of control units due to critical voltage supply, the robustness and reliability of safety-critical components and investigations into the sustainable utilisation of systems with electrical, chemical and other hazard potential. The aim is to establish Vehicle Safety 4.0 for electrically powered vehicles, too.
This cluster currently involves Impulse Project 4 “SEANCe: Safer electric mobility: before, during and after a crash” and exploratory project "HATS3" (Holistic Automotive Testing of Security, Safety and Storage).
