Project Objectives

OSTLER is based on the concept of modular storage devices around which an electric vehicle (EV) can be designed
Across 5 work packages it considered
  •  Battery system requirements
•  Battery pack crash worthiness
•  System integration
•  Removable battery packs
•  Build a working demonstrator


Strategy for cost reduction

OEM are customising and optimising designs to meet their requirements.  This creates unique battery pack designs.
OSTLER proposes a standard battery system interface that is flexible and supports differentiation of vehicle and battery design, whilst allowing reuse of a battery design across different vehicle platforms thus increasing production volumes.
