The TU9 Electromobility project is a collaboration between German and Chinese universities. Both countries share the goal of making electromobility a key component of future mobility concepts.
Decreasing resources and the impending climate change demand an urgent transition to renewable energy sources. For transportation, this implies a rapid introduction of electromobility. This change does not only require progress in battery technology, but an adjustment of vehicle design on all levels. In order to accomplish this, the sub-projects have been divided into three categories:
- Bild: sino-german emobility
- Energy Conversion and Storage
- Anode and Cathode Materials for Batteries
- Ethanol Fuel Cell Range Extenders
- Electric Vehicle Concepts
- System Approach for Electrical Drivetrain Systems
- Energy Supply and Infrastructure
- Innovative Electronic Control Units
- Car 2X Integration
Germany is a frontrunner in car manufacturing, and China is leading in the production of batteries. Chinese universities and institutes have also developed a huge research activity in batteries. Since the expertise is complementary, both nations would mutually benefit from the advances in research in electromobility. By close, interdisciplinary collaboration, the TU9 project aims at evolving electromobility.

Various papers are written within the framework of the project:
The paper Energy Optimization for Real-Time Multiprocessor System-on-Chip with Optimal DVFS and DPM Combination by Gang Chen, Kai Huang, and Alois Knoll from Technische Universität München, won the BEST PAPER AWARD at the 11th IEEE Symposium on Embedded Systems for Real-Time Multimedia.
The paper is selected to publish on ACM Transaction on Embedded Computing Systems. Congratulations!
