Impulse Project 4: Safe electric mobility

Impulse Project 4 is geared towards vehicle safety in hybrid and electric vehicles. Although there are a number of established solutions for averting known hazards such as battery fires and electrical hazards, the use of HV batteries creates new potential hazards that can result in significant personal injury and/or material damage in the event of an accident with a hybrid or electric vehicle. SEANCe will carry out research into solutions in three fields: protection of HV batteries during an accident, determination of causes of accidents by malfunction of control units and HV batteries, and safe reuse of HV batteries in order to eliminate this source of danger.


The impulse project is subdivided into the following subprojects:
