The partnership is a step forward for the nascent EV industry in India said the official statement. RVCE has a sophisticated “Semi Anechoic” chamber which can be used for initial EMI/EMC testing at subsystem and 2-wheeler levels. RVCE said that its advanced lab has material testing facilities and material research scope for battery life enhancement.
Embedded design for connected vehicles
Through the partnership, a joint advanced research will take place to develop Next Generation Controller, Battery Thermal Management (GCL IP project), embedded design for connected vehicles and application development for electric mobility.
Dr. M.P. Shyam, trustee, RSST, said, “This is a welcome collaboration between a highly rated academic institution and a leading industry player to transform an emerging sector such as EV with scope for constant innovation and product development.
