D8.4  Business plan

Executive Summary

The HEMIS project has two major objectives. The first one is to design a prognostic health monitoring system (PHMS) for Fully Electric Vehicles (FEVs). The system should provide information on the failsafe state of the electric powertrain in order to allow a condition based maintenance policy to be applied to its components, which is expected to increase the vehicle safety and to reduce the overall maintenance cost.

The second objective is to provide the manufacturers of FEVs with design guidelines regarding electromagnetic compatibility and human exposure to electromagnetic fields, as well as appropriate low frequency emissions testing methods.

The development of a PHMS for a new design technological system such as the powertrain of a FEV is a complex task which requires the management of multiple hybrid sources of information and knowledge, including, for example, expert judgment, analytical models of degradation mechanisms and experimental data.

Given the fact that FEVs market is up and coming, the PHMS development is an opportunity to give an added value service to this type of vehicles in two different sectors such as private vehicle and electro-mobility in urban public transport. At the same time, standards are being developed to unify different vehicle charging systems, pursuing standardisation in terms of connectors, protocols, communications and interoperability among different manufacturers.

This document describes the business plan foreseen to exploit the technology developed for PHMS under the HEMIS Project.
