DE-REX Project

In the course of the publicly funded project “DE‑REX”, the Institute for Mechatronic Systems in Mechanical Engineering (IMS) heads the consortium partners Institute for Electrical Energy Conversion, Institute for Internal Combustion Engines and Powertrain Systems (all of them TU Darmstadt), AKKA, Daimler, and MAGNA GETRAG.

The DE-REX transmission system and the electric motors were designed and two complete powertrain prototypes were manufactured and set up: one prototype was running at a powertrain test rig and the other one was integrated into a demonstrator vehicle, which is still tested and investigated in further research and development work.
