Challenges Faced by Chassis Engineers
The electrification of an increasing number of formerly mechanically and hydraulically powered chassis systems is currently one of the major challenges for chassis engineers. The strong rise in the number of electrical chassis components not only adds a new dimension to driving comfort but also enables the integration of a range of indispensable safety features. Also, active chassis systems (braking/suspension) can help recuperate energy. For their integration, extra effort is necessary to avoid negative impact on driving feel.
Advanced electric braking and steering systems
New technologies such as regenerative braking can improve the fuel economy of a vehicle significantly, and are therefore a major key to a mass implementation of electro mobility.
The electrification of braking, suspension and steering systems, as well as global chassis integration challenges will be the focus of IQPC’s 2nd International Conference Chassis Electrification.
