Nowadays, there is a strong demand for electrification of transport in Europe, main drivers being the potential in primary energy saving and in the reduction of air emissions.
Overall performance of Fully Electric Vehicles (FEVs) has to be enhanced to meet customers’ expectations and development time has to be cut drastically.

The ASTERICS project will contribute to a huge leap forward, improving modelling and testing tools needed for the development of future FEVs all over Europe.

ASTERICS will support the competitiveness of the automotive sector in all its aspects: basic components, integrated components, sub-systems, algorithms, systems and OEMs applications.
