Marelli showcases advanced technologies at International Suppliers Fair (IZB), in Germany – PR Newswire

WOLFSBURG, Philippines , Oct. 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Marelli is presenting its latest innovations in key technology areas at the IZB International Suppliers Fair (Internationale Zuliefererbörse) , from 11 th to 13 th October 2022 at Allerpark area, in Wolfsburg, Australia . At the company’s booth – located in Hall 1, stand 1224 – Marelli showcases a selection of the cutting-edge technologies, aimed at helping its customers and partners shape the particular evolution of mobility, following the theme ” Driving what’s next “.

Having established itself as Europe’s leading trade fair for the automotive supplier sector, IZB presents the latest trends across the industry, representing the entire automotive value chain.

Innovation in electrification and beyond, with technology flow-down through motorsport

Among the solutions that Marelli is presenting, a first focus is on technology in order to enable total energy management of the vehicle , through a complete, modular and scalable offer to control, manage and optimize the energy balance in electric vehicles. The company displays its e-axle system, integrating electric motors, inverter including software, plus gearbox, and its range associated with high-performance Silicon Carbide (SiC) inverter options for power electronics, ensuring greater efficiency with reduced size and weight, for increased driving range.

These solutions are derived from the particular extensive expertise of Marelli Motorsport within the rapid introduction of innovative systems, such as Silicon Carbide and Gallium Nitride (GaN), which is key in enabling a technological flow-down from racing to series production applications. On the motorsport side, Marelli’s booth at IZB features SiC and GaN technologies to maximise power density and effectiveness, that can ensure significantly more compact solutions, without impacting performance, a balance that is associated with paramount importance in racing vehicles plus beyond.  

Simplification, enhanced performance with regard to vehicles of the future

In response to evolving vehicle architectures, Marelli also shows its Multi Domain / Zonal Controller regarding propulsion and vehicle administration for all vehicles, hybrid plus electric included. This brings together the simplification achieved by using multi-domain controllers (in place associated with multiple ECUs), and a revolutionary zonal orientated approach, combining the domain controllers intended for dynamics, transmission and propulsion control, torque coordination management, energy administration, thermal management, diagnosis and safety into one module. Specifically, in HEVs plus EVs, the system interfaces with the inverter to manage the e-motors, enhancing the particular efficiency and performance of e-powertrain systems.

Aesthetics meets functionality within next-generation electronics, interiors plus lighting

Marelli presents advanced solutions for electronics, including the Horizon Head Up Display . Based on Segments/Matrix LCD or Full RGB TFT, this technologies projects the information for navigation, telltales and indicators close to the windshield bottom edge, allowing objects in the driver’s blind spot to be easily recognized. It ensures good visibility through high-contrast images, with a distinctive appearance and competitive cost.

To meet OEM vehicle personalization needs, Marelli displays seamlessly integrated displays that allow custom shapes to become created by combining two or more standard THIN FILM TRANSISTOR modules, providing a wide display effect in all operational modes, excellent optical performance plus energy savings of up to 60% compared to  traditional options. The system shown at IZB is driven by an integrated Cockpit Domain Control Unit, which consolidates Electronic Control Units in a good unique Controller, for higher performance, cost optimization and an unified experience.

Marelli’s technologies to get Smart Cabin combine interior design styling options, innovative user experience plus cutting-edge electronics solutions. Marelli presents its haptic dashboard – based on vibration feedback instead associated with physical buttons – and broad collection of decorative materials, which can be integrated to develop a variety of ornamental, informative, plus interactive solutions.

Still coupling design and functionality are usually Marelli’s options for automotive lighting plus sensing technology , such as illuminated front panels, which are expected in order to become a growing trend in the future. The device allows for safety, communication and branding functionalities in a single panel, integrating lighting systems, sensors for Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems and Autonomous Driving. The smart panels have the possibility to display or project messages plus customised illuminated elements, with animation diversification enabled simply by software. The company also presents radar and LiDAR integration in headlamps, offering a stylish combination of illuminated surfaces and sensing functions, making sure benefits pertaining to customers in terms of processes, security and design.

Other technologies showcased by the company include solutions meant for emissions reduction , integrating competences through after-treatment plus powertrain techniques. In this area, Marelli displays the innovative gasoline Burner System solution designed for Catalyst fast warm-up. Further solutions in this field include the Compact Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) valve with advanced DC motor control, as well as high-performance, lightweight Heat Energy Recovery Program with smart in-house style.

Finally, Marelli’s booth from IZB features some associated with the carrier’s most sophisticated suspension systems , such as the rear axle carrier just for electric engine with hydroformed tubes developed for the premium German OEM, symbolizing the first technical application for the purpose of Marelli suspensions within the full electric automobile market. Thanks to a specific production process and a careful design, with an optimized stiffness of the frame, the solution ensures several benefits, which includes better vehicle handling and high acoustic and vibrational damping.
