IN THIS YEAR'S TOP 10 TECH CARS, as in the global auto industry at large, the Great Disconnect becomes more obvious. On the one hand, virtually every carmaker offers models that deploy technology in unabashed pursuit of energy efficiency and reduced environmental impact. In our group of honorees this year, the Tesla Model 3 and the charming Kia Niro hybrid fit in this category. Yet for all the talk of a Tesladriven tipping point in electric transportation, EVs still make up a 0.5 percent drop… 

Enabling Technologies for Compact Integrated Electric Drives for Automotive Traction Applications

The current trends in commercially available electric drives for light-duty automotive applications are investigated, the challenges are identified, and innovative technologies to overcome the power density barrier are discussed.

Torque allocation of four-wheel drive EVs considering tire slip energy

With the increasing peak torque of the in-wheel motor, the tire slip energy dissipation becomes as considerable as the motor energy loss. The actuation redundancy in four-wheel drive electric
