Motor Transport Institute has for many years been conducting research and development activities for electromobility in
• International eMAP project - concerning market development scenarios for the electric vehicles market in
• International HIT2-Corridors project - the aim of which was to create and integrate a European network infrastructure for the use of hydrogen as a fuel in road transport to power electric vehicles.
Additionally, while working on the NCBiR project, the ITS created a prototype, hybrid battery charging station for electric vehicles based on solar and wind energy, as well as developed and patented method of fixing a removable battery cartridge for an electric vehicle (Patent Application No. P. 407,129). ITS also conducts research and laboratory tests in the field of autonomous vehicles, being the next step in the development of electromobility. The information on the effects of these studies we will constantly be updated on our website.
The ElectroMobility Poland Competition applies to the city car of the future, which will be industrially manufactured for commercial purposes. Below is a list of United Nations regulations concerning electric vehicles, according to which, Motor Transport Institute conducts type-approval tests of such vehicles:
• UN-ECE Regulation No. 85 - Uniform provisions concerning the type-approval of internal combustion engines or electric drive trains intended for the propulsion of motor vehicles of M and N category with respect to the measurement of net power output and the maximum power after 30 minutes for the electric drive systems – it applies, among the others, to the measurement of the net power and a 30-minute power output of the electric drive motor vehicle.
• UN-ECE Regulation No. 100 - Uniform provisions concerning the type-approval of vehicles with regard to specific requirements for the electric drive system [2015/505] – concerns the safety requirements for vehicles of M and N category with electric drive.
• UN-ECE Regulation No. 101 - Uniform provisions concerning the type-approval of passenger cars powered by an internal combustion engine or a hybrid electric drive system with respect to measuring carbon dioxide emission and fuel consumption and/or the measurement of electric energy consumption and the range when running on the electric power and vehicles of M1 and N1 category equipped with an electric drive system for the measurement of electricity consumption and the range when running on electric power – it applies among the others to the measurement of range and electricity consumption by M1 and N1 category vehicles with electric motor.
• UN-ECE Regulation No. 136 – Type-approval tests of L-category vehicles for the safety requirements of the electrical drive system and energy storage system.
