Funding scheme:SSA - Specific Support Action
The aim of this project is to make the Automotive Controls Research Group (ACRG) in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Istanbul Technical University (ITÜ) an excellent Automotive Controls and Mechatronics (Acronym: AUTOCOM) Centre for Actively Safe, Clean and Efficient Road Vehicles with an increased research and technological development (RTD) capacity and a higher level of participation in EU funded research activities. For this purpose, three thrust areas of research capacity reinforcement have been identified as: i) preventive and active safety control systems, ii) powertrain modeling, control and hardware-in-the-loop (HiL) testing and iii) hybrid electric vehicle modeling and control.
The project addresses the eSafety subpriority of the IST thematic priority area and the Transport and Integrated Safety subpriorities of the SustDev thematic priority area of Framework Programme 6.
