Many vehicle OEMs recently pronounced their ambitious plan to switch from ICE driven vehicles to full electric cars within in the next one or two decades. In addition, digitalisation will have a great impact to automotive industry as well. Thus, new ways to develop, test and constantly improve electric vehicles are needed. Being the most expensive and complex component, a special attention must be paid to the battery. This presentation demonstrates our approach towards this new challenge.
