Topic A1: Speed Pedelecs in Daily Commute and Exotic Travel
Speaker: Susanne Brüsch, Founder & Director of Pedelec Adventures
Abstract: Susanne will discuss the pros and cons of speed pedelecs (s-pedelecs, up to 45 km/h) as a means of urban transport and as a vehicle for long-distance travel. She will provide insight into the European s-pedelec market and report on her personal experience crossing Morocco's Sahara Desert, the Atlas mountains and Mongolia on s-pedelecs equipped with solar trailers.
Topic A2: European Market, the home ground of new LEV-mobility
Speaker: Han Goe, /Q SQUARE Managing Consultant
Topic A3: The latest industrial status of Electric two wheeler in Taiwan
Speaker: BM Lin, Manager of ITRI MCL and Project Leader of The ES Promotion Program
Abstract: In this session BM Lin will introduce the latest status of the electric scooter industry in Taiwan and discuss the standardization of charging interfaces and swapping batteries.
Topic B1: Recent Development & Trends of the Li-ion Batteries Market: Potential Applications Effect & Future
Speaker: Mark Lu, Certified Industrial Analyst, ITRI-IEK
Abstract: Consumer Electronic Products, xEV and BESS are the three major applications of Li-ion batteries. The demand of these products effect R&D activities, battery specifications and company performance. This presentation will cover some potential applications discussion such as electric bikes, xEV and UPS/BESS.
Topic B2: Comparison of Network Topologies for Two Wheel Vehicle Applications
Speaker: Robert Lankin, CEO of Accelerated Systems
Abstract: Increasingly serial networks are used to connect electronic modules in vehicle applications including electric bikes and scooters. This presentation will give a general introduction to opportunities and pitfalls of using serial networks in two wheel vehicle applications, including a comparison of popular networks such as CAN bus, LIN bus and Energy bus.
Topic B3: eSocialBike: Internet of Things for LEV Industry
Speaker: Gaetano Sciacovelli, Technical Business Developer of SITAEL S.p.A
Abstract: Connectivity is the key for Smart LEV management systems. The integration of mobile and cloud computing technology for electric vehicles delivers the possibility to retrieve diagnostic data online and in real time. Merging data, routes, statistics and connecting friends to a network opens new opportunities for communicating and interacting.
Topic C1: iBatt- A Real Time, Humanity Battery Management Interface
Speaker: Michael Chen, CEO of RCE
Abstract: This topic will share the application of power monitoring and warning via the integration of smartphone and cloud server.
Topic C2: Design and Technology trends of Li-ion Battery Packs for High-end Electric Bikes
Speaker: Charles Chou, CTO of TD HiTech Energy
Abstract: Using lithium ion batteries in high-end electric bikes has become one of the most essential options during the process of the system design. In the past years, customized designs of batteries for bike system integrations made it possible to provide design variations which extend the horizon beyond the limitation of most standard drive kits. In this presentation, we will discuss the recent variations on design and technology trends of Li-ion batteries in views of mechanical functions for battery packing, structure and outlook, as well as electronic functions in battery management systems.
Topic C3: How to Get Accurate Battery Information and How Important It is for EVs
Speaker: Dr.Chein-Chung Sun, ITRI and MCL
Abstract: Compared to 3C products, accurate battery information on electric vehicles are important especially when the vehicle’s battery pack cannot be fully charged within a short time and the charging stations are not widespread. Having improper battery information can lead to many issues. This session will discuss how to guarantee the accuracy of battery information when degradation occurs.
