Electric Vehicles gain more and more importance in public media as well as in scientific research. At the Department of Energy Conversion Technology a collegiate student project has been established to construct an electric vehicle based on a buggy chassis. Simulation models of the vehicle have been realized to study the system. A test bench for the propulsion system has been built. To use the test bench for hardware-in-the-loop tests of the communication system the ECUs are coupled with the existing test bench. The obtained results will be fed back to the upcoming new vehicle planned for the near future.
