The key to CO2-optimised and carbon-neutral mobility lies in the availability of comfortable ranges, which is particularly important for purely electric and fuel cell drives. This requires the provision of functioning and comprehensive fast-charging technologies and hydrogen refuelling stations. To ensure “APL – Best Practices”, we rely on AI-based tools for data analysis and processing, which enable the efficient implementation of digital twins. Such technologies promote the derivation of crucial fundamentals in the early project phases and thus contribute to significant time and cost optimisation.

In the field of e-mobility, our innovations promote the further expansion of your competitive advantage and address promising topics such as bidirectional charging, battery safety and recycling. From benchmarking and requirements engineering to complete application and validation, homologation and conformity of production, we support you along the entire development process chain. Our expertise covers the entire spectrum of emission-free energy systems – from HV batteries to fuel cells, from the cell level to the stack to the overall system.

Benchmarking, requirements engineering and concept development

  • Technical and commercial benchmarking:

    Analysis and evaluation of global products.
    Derivation and development of competitive and cost-optimised overall concepts.

  • Development of turnkey solutions:

    From material selection to the finished product, including cost, function and production optimisation.

  • Concept comparison and optimisation:

    Use of digital twins, supported by simulations and AI methods.

Testing and validation across all sample phases

  • Safeguarding during development:

    APL engineering to ensure product quality at component, module and overall system level.

  • Systematic testing:

    We use our software-based tests to check all relevant functionalities and thus identify potential for improving the overall product.

  • Digital or real-life testing scenarios:

    Through our tests in the SiL environment and hardware-in-the-loop, we derive the results for a high-performance overall system in the vehicle environment.

  • Increasing efficiency:

    Derivation of refining cycles to shorten test times by characterising degradation and damage mechanisms.

Development of trend-setting future technologies

  • Material innovations and operating strategies:

    Development of new materials and measurement methods to characterise future technologies.

  • Application development for new, complex technologies:

    APL engineering for the integration of future-oriented technologies into existing customer applications.

  • Sustainability in the product lifecycle:

    Our commitment to sustainability: We analyse field data, assess your systems and develop recycling concepts on behalf of our customers.
