Title: Advanced control of electric vehicles and development of wireless in-wheel motors
Abstract: Electric vehicles (EVs) have attractive potential not only for energy and environmental performance but also for vehicle motion control because electric motors have quick and measurable torque response. The speaker’s laboratory has developed a completely original EV which has active front and rear steering systems. We installed high-torque direct-drive in-wheel motors and lateral force sensors to all wheels.
In the first part of this talk, our recent studies on advanced motion control and autonomous driving to enhance safety, driving comfort, and energy efficiency will be briefly introduced. In the second part, a new type of in-wheel motor, which receives electric power by wireless power transfer using magnetic resonance coupling and control signals by wireless communication, in order to avoid the disconnection of power and signal cables have been developed. This system is called Wireless In-Wheel Motor (W‑IWM). In this system, it is also possible to directly transmit power to the in-wheel motor without cables from underground coils for dynamic charging in order to extend the cruising range. This talk introduces the overview and design methods of the W‑IWM. We also evaluate the characteristics of the W‑IWM when installed on an electric vehicle and demonstrate its effectiveness by driving tests.
