Mobility concepts for the future - Siemens presents industrial concepts for E-mobility at the New Mobility World 2017
Frankfurt a. M. The New Mobility World 2017 will be opening its doors from September 14 – 17, 2017 as part of this year’s IAA (International Motor Show) in Frankfurt am Main. At the show, which is dedicated to the future of mobility across every branch of industry, Siemens will be exhibiting charging technology for E-vehicles as well as intelligent traffic and infrastructure communication systems at its booth C39 in Hall 3.1 under the banner “Shaping future mobility systems – from understanding to optimizing”.
Climate protection, less dependency on fossil fuels, opening up new markets – the subject of electromobility is associated with a whole range of ancillary issues. It is an undisputed fact that electric vehicles are having and will continue to have a substantial role to play in the energy revolution. Just what the future of mobility will look like is the focus of the New Mobility World, which is due to be held from September 14 – 17, 2017 as part of the IAA (International Motor Show) in Frankfurt. Siemens will be exhibiting to the disruptors, innovators and representatives of industry and politics attending the show under the banner “Shaping future mobility systems – from understanding to optimizing”. The Siemens booth (C39) in Hall 3.1 will feature the latest applications and solutions from the company’s e-mobility portfolio.
For the e-mobility infrastructure to function effectively, it is vital for charging systems to be reliable and trouble-free – using for instance the industrial components Sinamics DCP, Simatic S7 and the ECC3200 charging controller. The new distributed IO module Simatic ET 200SP TM ECC 2xPWM 12V ST allows the demands of AC charging in compliance with IEC 61851 mode 3 to be seamlessly combined with Siemens automation systems. Benefits include a scalable construction, far less installation space and flexible adaption to the local conditions and charging infrastructure. Modern charging stations are capable of charging vehicles to a power level of 150 kW within just ten minutes. The charging stations permit up to three vehicles to be charged simultaneously, and are designed to provide a voltage level sufficient for future generations of electric vehicles with up to 920 volts.
In a bid to drive forward the “digitalization of our road systems”, Siemens has developed its Sitraffic ESCoS Vehicle-to-X technology. This intelligent communication technology interconnects vehicles with infrastructure systems and traffic control centers, optimizing the traffic flow and so reducing the likelihood of accidents and tailbacks. Alongside its positive impact on traffic safety, Vehicle-to-X also helps minimize emissions. The concept of networked driving offers enormous potential for improving traffic flow and the prevention of risk situations. Here, Siemens offers modern radar technology installed in radar sensors directly at the car, which allows vehicles to communicate with each other. Initial tests in real operation are currently already underway on the A9 freeway in Bavaria.
Solutions from Siemens to optimize the traffic flow include Sitraffic ESCoS Vehicle-to-X technology, which enables vehicles to link up to the infrastructure and traffic control centers.
Within a matter of only ten minutes, an electric vehicle is sufficiently charged to cover a distance of up to 100 kilometers. With voltages of 920 volts charging technology from Siemens is ideally placed to cope with current and future generations of electric vehicles.
In future, radar sensors will be capable of detecting factors such as the type and nature of carriageway occupancy. Detection of lane-by-lane actual speeds can be used to detect tailbacks and potentially dangerous situations.
The cooperative traffic management system Vehicle-to-X networks vehicles with the infrastructure and traffic control centers.
