Een nieuw ronderecord voor InMotion op Ciruit Assen

Afgelopen zaterdag 21 juli, heeft het studententeam van InMotion het elektrische ronderecord op het TT Circuit Assen verbroken. Na Circuit Zandvoort en Circuit Zolder, was ook deze keer de IM/e de snelste elektrische auto op het circuit.

Tijdens Experience Electric Day, ging de IM/e de track op. Na 1:43:059 passeerde hij de finishlijn en werd het elektrische baan record op TT Circuit Assen verbroken. Met een betere ophanging en aerodynamica, is de IM/e een nog grotere snelheidsduivel dan voorheen!

Eerdere succesvolle recordpogingen
Het was niet de eerste keer dat InMotion succesvol een recordpoging waagt. In juni 2017 verbrak zij het vorige record op Circuit Zandvoort met maar liefst 16 seconden. Slechts één maand later, in juli 2017, werd de IM/e ook de snelste elektrische auto op Circuit Zolder. Met niet minder dan 19 seconden werd het vorige record verbroken!

Samenwerkingsverband ICT en InMotion
InMotion is een raceteam dat bestaat uit studenten van de Technische Universiteit Eindhoven en Fontys Hogescholen. InMotion wil in 2023 met hun IM01-racewagen deelnemen aan de 24-uurs race van Le Mans. ICT en InMotion hebben samen de Electronic Control Units (ECU’s) ontwikkeld voor de volledige IM/e-racewagen. ICT levert haar op modellen gebaseerde ontwikkelingsproductieplatform Motar, dat bestaat uit de hardware en platformsoftware van de ECU’s, terwijl InMotion de aansturingsalgoritmen (applicatiesoftware) voor deze ECU’s ontwikkelt.

Persbericht: First electric car unveiled

Already in March we announced the partnership between ICT and InMotion about the development of the the Electronic Control Units (ECU’s) for the complete IM/e race car. ICT provides its Model based development Production Platform (MPP) consisting of the ECU’s hardware and platform software, while InMotion develops the control algorithms (application software) for these ECU’s. Last Saturday, InMotion revealed its first electric racing car: the KP&T IM/e during the opening of the Dutch Design Week (DDW) in Eindhoven. ICT was present and pleased to see the branded fastest electrical formula racer. With a top speed of 285 km/h the KP&T IM/e belongs to the absolute world top. During the remainder of the DDW the racing car is to admire in the so-called Klokgebouw at Strijp-S in Eindhoven. http://nos.nl/artikel/2063905-studenten-bouwen-snelste-elektrische-raceauto.html Press release from InMotion More information can be found at http://inmotion.tue.nl and at https://ict.eu/markets/automotive-mobility/motar/.

Persbericht: ICT joins MathWorks Connections Program

Technology Solutions & Services Provider ICT (ICT Netherlands) is pleased to announce that it has become a member of the MathWorks Connection Program as a product partner with their product, Motar. MathWorks is the world’s leading developer of technical computing software for engineers, scientists and analysts. mathworks partnerThe MathWorks Connections Program is available to third-party organizations that develop and distribute complementary, commercially available products, training, and consulting based on MATLAB and Simulink. These partner offerings address technical needs across a wide range of applications and industries worldwide with software and hardware products that extend the usage of MATLAB and Simulink. These solutions seamlessly integrate with MathWorks products and ensure ongoing compatibility in conjunction with new MathWorks releases. With the ICT Motar-platform control engineers can have their product ready as soon as the functional model is finished. Once the Simulink model is ready, code can be generated, built and flashed on a HW target from within Simulink with the click of a button. Motar bridges the gap from model to target and leverages the MathWorks Embedded Coder. “Being a member of the MathWorks Connections Program perfectly fits in our strategy and reinforces ICT’s position as a leading system integrator in the field. Model-based development is expected to grow while evolving towards fully autonomous mobility, driving and safety, and the demand for shorter development cycles is expected to increase, which in turn will accelerate the need to bridge gaps from Model to Target.” says Eeuwke Wielinga, Business Unit Manager of ICT Automotive & Mobility. “We welcome ICT as a product and integration partner of MathWorks, we strongly believe that our mutual customers will benefit through the combined offerings from ICT and MathWorks”, says Stephan van Beek, Technical Manager, MathWorks. About ICT Automotive & Mobility ICT Automotive & Mobility (Part of ICT Netherlands) is a co-development & integration partner for state-of-the-art (embedded) software for vehicle electrical & electronic systems and components, working across the automotive OEM supply chains in Europe and Asia. We have built up our domain knowledge over a period of more than 20 years working for leading companies in this industry. We have a strong focus on the future of mobility where people feel secure and happy in transport in every day live. The vehicle will become a trusted partner through close communication with the driver. Ultimately moving towards zero casualties from traffic accidents and a stress-free traffic environment where everyone can move around as they wish.

Press release: ICT and InMotion annouce partnership

Today ICT (ICT) and Stichting Automotive Technology InMotion (InMotion) announce a partnership. InMotion is an automotive race team that consists of students of Eindhoven University of Technology and Fontys University of Applied Sciences. InMotion aims to participate in the 24h race of Le Mans in 2017 with their IM01 race car. Furthermore they set out to break the all time record on the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife. As predecessor of the IM01, InMotion is currently developing the IM/e race car which embodies an all-electric test platform for technologies to be used on the IM01, e.g. several active systems. News_20150310-2Together ICT and InMotion will develop the Electronic Control Units (ECU’s) for the complete IM/e race car. ICT provides its Model based development Production Platform: Motar, consisting of the ECU’s hardware and platform software, while InMotion develops the control algorithms (application software) for these ECU’s. News_20150310-1 Colin Diederen, Public Relations Manager InMotion: “We are proud to team-up with an innovation-driven company like ICT. With their platform, we can create the perfect ECU and architecture for our test vehicle. This is a major step towards the development of our Le Mans racer, the IM01”. Eeuwke Wielinga, ICT’s Business Unit Manager Automotive & Mobility: “We are excited to contribute to the goal of InMotion to deliver the first race car on the roadmap to the IM01 in 2015. Both InMotion and ICT share the passionate drive of technological innovation and the desire to apply groundbreaking technology on cars. Being at the forefront of many of the latest developments we successfully developed the Motar-platform for the automotive industry. ICT’s Motar-platform consists of both hardware and software. The platform offers seamless integration of MATLAB / Simulink control algorithms on production class automotive hardware built up on an AUTOSAR architecture. As such it forms an excellent basis for automotive control development on various HW platforms.” For further information about InMotion: www.inmotion.tue.nl Further information about ICT’s Motar-platform
