AT SbW System integration of actuator
Purpose and goal
The project objective was to collect knowledge and develop competitive actuation subsystems within AT SbW technology which can be commercialized by KA as a tier 1 full system supplier securing the position of the Swedish automotive industry. In addition, the academic partners will through this project be able to develop and direct its expertise directly into an industrial setting, and will strengthen its ties with the Swedish automotive industry while expending their knowledge within electromagnetic actuation. The goals with the project were reached.
Expected results and effects
The project has succeeded in developing and producing two different concepts, Novell and conventional, the gear actuator (actuator) and its electronic control unit (ECU). These subsystems are then integrated to an existing but reprogrammed electronic gear selector. The result was a complete and fully operational SBW system.
Planned approach and implementation
The overall strategy of the project realization was to inrease the knowledge in a complete shift by wire system, with the emphasis on the actuator side of the system. this work was conducted in 9 work packages as described in the application. These were fully followed in the project. The project got also support from Volvo Car Corporation in terms of sharing their system requirement specification for AT SbW system. The system was finally implemented in a demo car (model V60) for testing and demonstration of the system.
