Electronic differential for small electrical vehicle

In the Electronic differential for small electrical vehicle, LARICS developed an electronic differential, comprising of a traction control system (TCS), an anti-lock braking system (ABS) and an electronic stability control (ESC). During this project, we developed a realistic nonlinear model of an electric car, which we used as a base for the design and testing of control systems. Algorithms were implemented on different embedded solutions and tested using a hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) system.

After that, the TCS was tested on a traction control testbed, which was also developed during the project. An illustration and photos are displayed below:
