Amplifii was a successful Programme, sponsored by OLEV, through Innovate UK, the outputs of which were launched at Cenex LCV17. The project, led by WMG (University of Warwick) brought together OEMs with diverse requirements (JLR, JCB, Ariel, ADL) with a supply chain (Delta Motorsport, Potenza, Trackwise), technology providers (WMG, MIRA, Oxford University) and recycling companies (Axion, Augean). It has delivered novel and leading designs for high power and high energy modules, along with the manufacturing methods to deliver them to medium volume production. The project has also created open access module and pack pilot assembly and test lines at WMG.
Following the success of that project, this follow-on explores the vehicle integration and vehicle electrification impacts of the Amplifii batteries in the proposed OEM products - in particular to understand hands-on (now that hardware is available) how electrification changes the usage pattern of these vehicles - and any mitigating factors which must be designed into the vehicle or battery. Typical markets for exploitation of the project include on-road (bus, commercial vehicle, premium passenger car) and off-highway (construction equipment, military, and motorsport).
