Electronic Control Units (ECUs) in Electric Two-Wheeler


In the Automotive Industry, the Electric Avatar of bikes has likewise begun taking the middle stage. As the streets of the Global Cities are getting to be busier continuously, an Electric Two Wheeler guarantees to be a more eco-accommodating, economical and attainable choice for nearby drive. To satisfy this guarantee and meet the desires for advanced sagacious city suburbanites, many OEMs' are supporting Android Infotainment and Telematics related highlights in Electric Two Wheelers. In contrast with Electric Cars, however the complexities are radically extraordinary yet the normal innovation string between them is a humble electronic part known as an Electronic Control Unit. The Electronic Control Units have made the vehicles more astute throughout the years and are encouraging the bikes to end up Smart too. ECUs in Electric Two-Wheelers


A few highlights, broadly coordinated in four wheelers, are presently being made accessible in two– wheelers also. These highlights incorporate motor immobilizers, ABS, Anti-robbery alert and so forth! In any case, as we are concentrating on just the electric bikes in the blog, we will adhere to a couple of specific vehicle ECUs basic for the plan of an Electric Two-Wheeler. Since the equipment and programming difficulties identified with bike engineering configuration are very not quite the same as that of four wheelers. The inside and out comprehension of Control Units and Motor Control Systems turns into a fascinating prospect for a maturing Automotive Engineer! Be that as it may, before we hop to various control frameworks and their job, here's a little prelude – we will investigate the two conceivable engineering plans for a systems of ECUs' in an electric bike.


Centralized ECU System vs Multiple ECU System Single ECU System Architecture Pros : As a single ECU is at work, the developers need to devote lesser time for testing the units. Fewer Third-party licenses are involved. The fault can be easily located because of the centralized design of the architecture. Lesser number of ECUs leads to reduced time-to-market and design cost. Cons : Direct connection of a number of Sensors with the central body control unit translates into a complicated set of harnesses which creates complexity. Single ECU also means a bigger board that may take up a lot of space. A  back-up unit (Redundant system)  is required as a fault in the Main ECU can have a far-reaching impact. This again translates into cost overhead.


Centralized ECU System vs Multiple ECU System Multiple ECUs Architecture Pros: Control processor (Main Control Unit)  will perform only the computation and this helps in boosting the overall performance of the system. Complexity of the harness (wiring) coming to the body control module will be reduced. In case of a fault in one control unit, there won’t be an impact on the other units to a large extent . Cons: More ECUs would mean escalated cost, thus making vehicle more expensive. Different control units would need to be tested separately; Impact- More turn-around time and increased development cost. Several 3 rd  party licenses may be required, when we use vehicle ECUs from different vendors .
