Daniel Wanner, Ph.D. candidate

Daniel Wanner

Daniel Wanner is a Ph.D. candidate in vehicle dynamics at the School of Engineering Sciences of the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Sweden.

Daniel Wanner graduated in industrial engineering (Diplom Wirtschaftsingenieur) 2010 from RWTH Aachen University, Germany. His main research interests include the over-actuation of chassis and driveline systems, generic chassis control and fault-tolerant control methods of hybrid electric and battery electric vehicles. Driver behaviour and driver-vehicle interaction during failure conditions are also a research topic Daniel works on.

Daniel Wanner is primarily assigned to the research project "Fault-Tolerant Over-Actuated Hybrid- and Electric Vehicles" within the Swedish Hybrid Vehicle Center ( SHC ). The scope of the project is to analyse electric and other faults conditions occurring in hybrid electric and pure electric vehicles and accommodate these with appropriate control strategies. The severity of vehicle crashes due to technical failures shall be reduced and even potential vehicle crashes avoided in order to decrease the amount of fatalities and injuries.

Project interview (SHC)

He is further working in several work packages of the European project EVERSAFE - "Everyday Safety for Electric Vehicles". He coordinates the activities of KTH within the active safety block of EVERSAFE and is responsible for a partial work package. The main goal of this project is to enhance active and passive safety for second generation electric vehicles. In the active safety part of the project, the driver responses on  typical electric faults are analysed in vehicle and simulator experiments. A detailed project description can be found here:
