MOTEG-Reimagining Mobility with worldwide highly innovative auxiliary components for commercial vehicles

Project description

Reimagining mobility

State-of-the-art auxiliary power units were developed for fossil fuel engines and do not meet the new mobility requirements, especially in terms of operating performance, noise level and total cost of ownership. To combat these issues, the EU-funded comAUX project is working on an optimised set of innovative and unique auxiliary aggregates for electric buses and commercial vehicles. This approach will provide a new set of standards in technology and efficiency. What is more, it will enable manufacturers to produce electric vehicles with 10 % longer range or 10 % less investment in battery as well as a reduced total cost of ownership.

Objective

As a result of the global megatrend of e-mobility, there is a demand for highly efficient auxiliary units for braking and steering systems, as well as for example tipping devices of an excavator and the lifting platform of a truck for electric buses and commercial vehicles. Currently, this is causing massive disruption to automotive supply chains, while innovative solutions are lacking. State-of-the-art auxiliary power units were developed for fossil fuel engines and do not meet the requirements of the new mobility, especially in terms of operating performance, noise level and total cost of ownership.
MOTEG has introduced an optimized set of innovative and unique auxiliary aggregates for electric buses and commercial vehicles. The development path for the aviation industry has enabled us to identify market opportunities in the automotive sector and to find synergies in an application-oriented product series development of electrical auxiliary units for commercial vehicles, the compAux series. This approach has enabled us to set new standards in technology and efficiency.Ouz aggregates occupy a third of the volume, half the weight and are with 68dBa noise level much quieter than all existing fossil-fuel powered competition products. The leading factor is the reduced energy consumption by a factor of 2 compared to the competition. MOTEG enables manufactures to produce electric vehicles with 10% longer range or 10% less investment in battery and reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by about 20 T€. Nevertheless, the price level of the MOTEG products is below the price of existing competition products. At the same time, we will expand our solutions to develop products for many other types of commercial vehicles, including construction machinery and agricultural vehicles. User acceptance will help us optimize our products and maintain traction for commercial success.
