Powering the electric car market through innovative integrated powertrains

The European collaborative project ODIN (Optimised electric Drivetrain by INtegration) is co-funded by the European Union (FP7), with consortium partners including Bosch, GKN, Renault, Fuchs, Romax, CIE Automotive and ISEA (RWTC Aachen University).

The use of Romax technical consulting services and Romax software provided detailed system level engineering of the electro-mechanical package to control key attributes of cost, efficiency and NVH by using software tools throughout the design cycle. A 50% cost reduction and a 2% improvement in overall efficiency was achieved, when compared to reference powertrains. The goal is to stimulate the EV marketplace and enable mass production in the EU of cheap, durable, high-speed vehicles.
