On 17 February 2021 and 3 March 2021, the Horizon 2020 projects QUIET and DOMUS have held a two-session Clustering Workshop. The clustering workshop has been set up as both projects aim to optimize energy efficiency and thus to increase the range of electric vehicles via innovative user-centric design. New cabin components, systems and control strategies will be developed and demonstrated in an A and B segment car.
Both projects presented their progress and highlighted the similarities and differences in their approach during the workshop.
The Clustering workshop was divided into two sessions:
Session 1 (on the 17th of February)
During this session, the different methodologies applied by both projects in order to fulfil the same objectives have been discussed and analyzed.
Session 2 (on the 3rd of March)
During this session, breakthrough technologies at component level were discussed. Additionally, invited speakers from the H2020 projects BIOMOTIVE and FITGEN held discussions about alternative solutions at component level related to EVs.
