Abstract

In this contribution, additional degrees of freedom resulting from an additional motor in the front wheel (all-wheel driven motorbike) are used within newly developed methods for enhancing safety and energy efficiency. All algorithms have been developed with respect to realtime capability on a ECU. The basis of the investigations is a test vehicle based on a commercially available electric moped, whose power train was modified for the research purposes with the support of industry partners.
