Electric Mobility. A unique opportunity for Knorr-Bremse to actively shape the future of fully electrified commercial vehicles.
Electric mobility will fundamentally change the architecture of commercial vehicles, as well as the system requirements it must fulfil. Consequently, the shift to electric drivetrains implies a rethink of all vehicle dynamics systems in order to exploit the full potential of electric commercial vehicles.
Aiming to play a proactive role in this transformation, Knorr-Bremse has set up an E-Mobility innovation unit, eCUBATOR. The unit’s experts take a holistic, systems-based approach to developing innovative, intelligent solutions for electrically powered commercial vehicles. This is already opening up numerous opportunities for Knorr-Bremse to produce efficient, scalable technologies ranging from traction, braking and steering solutions through to power supplies. At the same time, Knorr-Bremse is already looking ahead to second-generation electric vehicles, which are expected to appear on the market starting in 2025. Key technologies here include energy management systems, electromechanical actuators, additional functions for drive and powertrain integration, and electronic braking systems.
