Modelling & Optimization of eScooter Powertrain

Overview

Already nowadays electro mobility is much more advanced in China than Europe. In big cities like Shanghai and Beijing many electric scooters, in short eScooter, are already widely used. They offer a cheap alternative to cars and have many benefits in urban traffic. This trend is also supported by the government, offering eScooters for a very cheap price and inflicting high taxation for combustion engines.

As part of the cooperation between Bosch in Shanghai and ISYS the behavior of the eScooter will be modelled at first. Afterwards, based on the obtained powertrain model, the eScooter will be optimized regarding different criteria like battery lifetime and range extension.
