Vocis, one of the UK’s leading specialists in advanced vehicle driveline solutions, is set for the next phase of development of its NVN and Innovate UK funded, 4SED Transmission system, following the recent consolidation of its operations at MIRA Technology Park.
The company, which provides expertise in the design, development, integration, control and calibration of automotive transmission systems, has brought together its 30-strong team into one location for the first time, where it will develop its innovative Four Speed Electric Drive (4SED) alongside its engineering activities on customer projects and other advanced engineering projects for multi-speed seamless shifting transmissions.
The 4SED provides combined performance and efficiency improvement, compared to a single speed solution, and achieves seamless gear shifting within a very simple mechanical layout. The additional USP of the latest R&D developments include the integration of 48V electric machines, a novel low-cost contactless gear engagement device and a powertrain controller suitable for driving both electric machines and vehicle control.
Vocis’ larger facility at MIRA Technology Park enables closer collaboration between staff and the ability for the business to expand its team. The company will welcome up to 10 engineers in the next five years including two graduates starting this summer.
