Vehicle Control Unit
OpenECU M560 and M580 are compatible with OpenECU products with Pi Innovo Pi-EV Application Software. These OpenECU products can directly interface with electric vehicle architecture.
Electric Vehicle (EV)
Purely electrical vehicles use an electric motor for traction,
and batteries for their corresponding energy sources. The EV
has many advantages over the conventional internal
combustion engine vehicle, such as absence of emissions, high
efficiency, independence from petroleum, and quiet and
A calibration guide which gives instructions on deploying and calibrating the system is provided along with the Simulink control strategy. Detailed descriptions of system features and calibration methods are included. Although the strategy is built using Simulink and Stateflow blocks and can be integrated in all types of platforms, the guide also provides instruction on how to implement the strategy using the OpenECU platform.
