Ezio SPESSA, DENERG, February 27 th 2013 Duration: 48 months Coordinator: Fiat Research Centre (CRF) Number of partners: 29 Total budget: ,380 kEuro Requested EU contribution: 9.997,956 kEuro PoliTO budget: 333 kEuro PoliTO EU contribution: 250 kEuro PoliTO scientific responsible: Prof. Ezio Spessa Current status: negotiation started
Ezio SPESSA, DENERG, February 27 th 2013 Total acceptance (by the general public in addition to policy makers) is the key to the future success of innovative mobility solutions, particularly of e-mobility. FEV acceptance critical issues of batteries: high weight; high costs (with the risk that materials will become significantly more expensive as demand rises); safety risks; relatively high CO2 footprint of their manufacturing; low energy density FABRIC motivation: assess the potential and feasibility of a more extensive integration of FEVs with the recharging infrastructure -> CHARGE-WHILE-DRIVING Background
Ezio SPESSA, DENERG, February 27 th 2013 FABRIC takes a holistic approach to the assessment of on-road charging, directly addressing the technological feasibility, socio-economic viability and environmental sustainability from all perspectives. FABRIC will implement and test advanced solutions, conceived to enable full integration in the grid and road infrastructure within urban- and extra-urban environments, for application to a wide range of future electric vehicles. Concept
Ezio SPESSA, DENERG, February 27 th 2013 Inductive charging Induction coil (charged with HF AC, thereby creating a magnetic field) Inductive power receiver (pick-up) Thanks to a vehicle detection system, an individual inductive segment in the road can be activated only when the vehicle is positioned directly above it.
Ezio SPESSA, DENERG, February 27 th 2013 The FABRIC project will perform a full feasibility analysis of contactless, wireless on-road charging solutions for future electric vehicles while drawing comparisons with other innovative dynamic recharging methods currently being investigated, such as the conductive dynamic charging. Inductive charging FABRIC will also include a full assessment of the ICT solutions which are required to support the driver and charging.

Ezio SPESSA, DENERG, February 27 th 2013 Analysis of the feasibility of the possible technological options of on-road charging and their testing and comparison in terms of the main parameters such as cost, transferable power and efficiency, and infrastructure requirements. Assessment of the impact on the vehicle in terms of architecture and capacity of the on-board energy storage system Addressed Aspects SP3 – Charging solutions
Ezio SPESSA, DENERG, February 27 th 2013 The ergonomics of driving while in charging mode and potential links with (semi) automated driving benefiting from the presence of the charging line; Assessment of the needed ICT solutions to support the driver and charging energy costs, including data security and privacy issues Addressed Aspects SP2 – ICT solutions
Ezio SPESSA, DENERG, February 27 th 2013 Addressed Aspects Development and technological demonstration of one selected charging option in terms of the required on- board and on-infrastructure energy transfer technology, maximizing efficiency and instantaneous energy transfer rates SP4 – Integration, Infrastructure and testing
Ezio SPESSA, DENERG, February 27 th 2013 Addressed Aspects SP4 – Italy test site A32 Motorway Torino – Bardonecchia (managed by SITAF) Two paved lanes equipped with 250 m – embedded induction loops
Ezio SPESSA, DENERG, February 27 th 2013 Addressed Aspects Economic assessment (including business cases for the gradual introduction in urban and extra-urban roads) Distribution network and electricity generation Pavement construction and maintenance requirements Environment, including a LCA of environmental impacts, risks and benefits of the entire proposed solution Comparison with the current reference cases of slow and fast charging FEVs and range extended/plug in hybrids Safety (including EMC) and health impacts SP5 – Assessment
Ezio SPESSA, DENERG, February 27 th 2013 Related EU projects ecoFEV (Efficient Cooperative infrastructure for Fully Electric Vehicles): to study, define and implement efficient and cooperative electric mobility system architecture for FEVs. UNPLUGGED (Wireless charging for EVs): to investigate how the use of inductive charging of EVs in urban environments improves the convenience and sustainability of EVs, facilitating full EV integration in urban mobility systems improving customer perception and acceptance
Ezio SPESSA, DENERG, February 27 th 2013 PoliTO Tasks SP3 (DIMEAS): Design of the electric power train and battery pack, Design of the capturing system. SP4 (DISEG): Dynamic characterization of existing road infrastructure per test site (dynamic stiffness, damping, non-linearity, hysteresis)
Ezio SPESSA, DENERG, February 27 th 2013 PoliTO Tasks SP5 (DENERG + DISEG): Analyze the entire solutions proposed for the continuous charging of the EV in terms of energy efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions. Evaluate and benchmark proposed technical solutions vs. n.p./hybrid/FEV vehicles with standard fast/slow recharging systems Review the selected techniques and technologies for their impact on road infrastructure on a large deployment scale. The whole road construction and governance supply chain will be taken into account for different types of areas and regions.
Ezio SPESSA, DENERG, February 27 th 2013 Key objectives: The goal is to strengthen European competitiveness in the road vehicles sector. To achieve this, the project work will address five key objectives: 1. Assess the current/future capacity of Europe’s regional research driven clusters; 2. Assemble a portfolio of best practices as regards the key aspects of cluster management and regional R&I policy deployment; 3. Ensure that all European regions with a potential to contribute can do so; 4. Development of a common SAGE agenda with long and short term goals for innovation, research and education; 5. Integrate an innovation and IP management system consortium-wide to enable efficient and reliable knowledge exchange. 6. Implement a Joint Action Plan and a Business Plan. They will devise common activities for the SAGE partnership that will drive economic growth through research and innovation, and strategies to facilitate these activities.
