The aim of the project is to increase the safety and reliability of battery boxes for vehicles so that they can primarily met the requirements of the new directive ECE 100.02. They will also be significantly improved with functional characteristics of the battery compartment, so to meet the demanding test criteria that will be newly created on the basis measured driving tests. This test procedure is stricter than the Directive ECE, thus ensuring high reliability and safety of the battery boxes.
Utility characteristics of the battery box will be improved in a number of areas, always in relation to the production technology and the competitiveness of the final product on the market. The main improvements of use properties will include active temperature management, suitable for both standard (High Energy) battery boxes, as well as quick (High Power) battery boxes suitable for transport. Finally, the project will also address the environmental aspects of the life cycle of the battery cells, modules and battery boxes.
Monitoring the life cycle of the battery packs and boxes will be provided by using the RFID technology. To get detailed information about the number of charge and discharge cycles, and other additional information the battery packs and boxes will be added with RFID identifiers. This technology will also allow the efficient processing of waste at end of life battery boxes. It will be carried out the functional tests of RFID interference and influence.
