Innovative Solutions to Long-Term Battery Safety and Performance in Unmanned and Autonomous Vehicles
Wednesday, October 07, 2020: 3:00 PM - 3:45 PM
Designing batteries for autonomous vehicles poses unique engineering and logistic challenges.
We will explore the challenges, solutions and common pitfalls of battery design for autonomous vehicles. Topics will include: *Top 7 design mistakes and how to avoid them * Which chemistry is right for me? - How to select an appropriate chemistry for the application * Extreme environment designs - How to design a battery for hot/cold temperatures * Designing for Safety - Understanding the three pillars of safety: cells vendor, design and assembly * Opportunities for Failure - Most common battery failures and how to avoid them * Transportation Nightmares - The challenges of transporting batteries and the importance of planning ahead * Surviving the Real World - how to design for vibe, shock, and drops.
This session should be attended by anyone responsible for the electrical or mechanical design of vehicles or anyone responsible for the design or sourcing of the vehicle's power.
