The eMove360° Award is presented parallel to the international trade fair for Mobility 4.0 of the same name – the world’s largest technology trade fair for electric mobility and connected & autonomous driving.
The scalable battery housing SCALEbat helps car manufacturers and startup companies to develop fle-xible electric vehicle floor assemblies, and provides a starting point for new cooperation projects, rese-arch and development. The EDAG Group developed the concept and the demonstrator in collaboration with Siemens Industry Software GmbH, Baomarc Automotive Solutions S.p.A. and Carl Cloos Schweiß-technik GmbH on the basis of the scalable floor assembly for electric vehicles developed by the EDAG Group, which is successfully marketed under the brand name SCALEbase.
On the basis of an EDAG consulting concept, the combined use of these two system concepts leads to a significant reduction in development times and cost economies for international new OEMs and startup companies.
The “SCALEbat” joint project was awarded first place in the “Battery & Powertrain” category by the expert jury as the most innovative and promising competition entry in the category and underlines the innovative energy of the EDAG Group and its mission of proactively developing new concepts and solutions for mobility of the future.
