TECNALIA and the Provincial Council of Alava are launching the digital platform Araba 4.0
AUTOLAB enables the generation of ad-hoc electrification solutions for customers. To achieve this, it has a reconfigurable universal ECU drive (hardware + software) and a model-based methodology (Dynacar + VECUcar) that enable the powertrain architecture and the most appropriate ECU to meet the requirements of vehicle functionality with the greatest efficiency and safety.
OEM long-series and their suppliers have developed electrification capabilities, but manufacturers of special vehicles (ambulances, fire trucks, buses, rubbish trucks, logistics, etc.) require ad-hoc developments for their requirements and do not have suppliers or internal capabilities to address them.
Companies operating fleets want access to the benefits of electrification without having to renew their fleet entirely. On the one hand, the CapEx of a new vehicle could be eligible for benefits that would optimise OpEx competitively.
