Recently, the possibility of upgrading conventional vehicles to Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV's) is gaining interest. Among the different options for hybridization, researchers are focusing on electrification of rear wheels in front-driven vehicles, transforming the vehicle in a Through-The-Road (TTR) parallel HEV. This paper deals with the research work on the development of a kit for converting a conventional vehicle into a TTR Hybrid Solar Vehicle (HSV). In order to develop an effective and safe control strategy for wheel-motors, a precise real-time knowledge of the Driver Intention is required. In particular, the detection of the active gear is needed. In this paper, a mathematical model for the real-time identification of the active gear, using only data measured by the On Board Diagnostics (OBD) port, is presented and validated over on road experimental data.
