The Project

  • Factor of Success: Networking

    We are pooling expertise from three technology sectors: information and communication technology, vehicle engineering and energy management.

    With the eBus-Cluster project we develop innovative system solutions for manufacturers of electric-driven busses in order to advance electromobility in a sustainable way. Our targets:

    • Increase energy efficiency of electric-driven busses
    • Improving passengers comfort
    • Enhance safety of local public transport vehicles
    • Proof of practical benefits in our ColumBus as experimental vehicle
  • Future of Modern Mobility: Internet of Things

    Perfect interaction of all single solutions within eBus-Cluster project guarantees the success: All systems can be cross-linked via standard interfaces. This increases the technical performance of e-busses and enables preventive maintenance of individual components.  At the same time we aim to ensure performance-enhancing comfort and safety.

    Of course each particular system developed within the eBus-Cluster can also be applied as an isolated application in other use cases.

The Partners of eBus-Cluster

TIn eBus-Cluster we pool our competences and experience in the field of vehicle engineering, digitalization and interior. Together we develop energy-saving intelligent systems and sustainable solutions for electric-driven busses. So we all make an important contribution to achieving the targets set within the eBus-Cluster.

All solutions developed within the eBus-Cluster have the key objective to increase the total efficiency of the vehicle. Solutions for energy-efficiency often can be used for improving safety and comfort for passengers, drivers and other road users.

All data collected in the Internet of Things will be processed, evaluated and retransfered quickly by our software solutions. The interaction of all eBus-Cluster solutions offers new economic opportunities to OEMs and operators for using eBusses for public transportation in an efficient way.
