AMPLiFII, is an Innovate UK project, the aim of which is to build and research the next generation of traction batteries for electric and hybrid vehicles. The best automated and manual assembly methods for the assembly of battery modules are demonstrated as part of this project. The battery pack requirements are specified by four major OEMs; Jaguar Land Rover, ADL, Ariel and JCB. Design and development of the battery systems is done by Delta Motorsport, Potenza, RDVS, PAISEU and Trackwise. WMG, HORIBA MIRA, and the University of Oxford support the design, development and manufacturing of the process and Axion supports battery system lifecycle management. With the world now moving towards electric vehicle technology, the insights gained from the project will help lay foundation for smarter battery systems that could potentially reduce development cost and effort.
