e-Vectoorc: Electric-Vehicle Control of Individual Wheel Torque for on- and off-Road Conditions

Project e-vectoorc is aimed to the area of research related to yaw moment control, anti-lock braking and traction control through the employment of effective torque vectoring strategies for fully electric vehicles. In particular, the adoption of individually controlled electric powertrains with the aim of tuning the vehicle dynamic characteristics in steady-state and transient conditions is discussed. This subject is currently investigated within the European Union (EU) funded Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) consortium E-VECTOORC, focused on the development and experimental testing of novel control strategies. Triennial project is solved by consortium research public and private institutions/companies.
